CPFD Software has continued our longstanding support of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers‘ (AIChE) Particle Technology Forum (PTF) by sponsoring the PTF Student Poster Awards. CPFD would like to congratulate Shota Miyake and Ashin Sunny, winners of the 2023 Student Poster Competition.
Ashin Sunny is a Ph.D. candidate in Prof. Liang-Shih Fan’s Clean Energy Research Laboratory in the Chemical Engineering Department at The Ohio State University. Ashin earned his undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from the Institute of Chemical Technology, India. He is passionate about tackling climate change via decarbonization and developing sustainable processes that impact the global community. His doctoral research focuses on the material design and process development of CO2 capture technologies, He leverages fluidization techniques to intensify process efficiencies of reactor systems ranging from laboratory to sub-pilot scale.
Ashin presented his poster “Exploring magnetically stabilized fluidized bed reactor for enhanced point source CO2 capture using alkali metal carbonate-based solid sorbents”. The work focuses on developing a reactor technology for improving gas-solid contact and enhancing carbon capture efficiencies in natural gas power plants.
Shota Miyake is a 2nd year graduate student at Osaka Metropolitan University. He is working on dry mixing of electrode fine powder for all solid-state batteries, and he earned his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Osaka Prefecture.
Shota presented “Dry granulation of cathode active material and solid electrolyte powders for all-solid-state batteries”. This study focuses on the process of producing all-solid-state batteries in a dry process and evaluates the fabrication method and the battery performance of the obtained samples.
