Seminar will look at 3-D coal structure modeling

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Jonathan Mathews, associate professor in energy and mineral engineering and recent chair of the International Conference on Coal Science and Technology will present a seminar titled "Advancing the Creation and Use of Large-Scale Coal and Coal-Char Atomistic Representations" on Oct. 23 at the EMS Energy Institute.

Mathews is a coal scientist who examines the complex relationship between coal structure and behavior, often coupling experimental and molecular simulation approaches. His talk is part of the EMS Energy Institute's Energy Exchange Seminar series. The talk will take place in C213 Coal Utilization Laboratory from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. For more information on this talk or upcoming seminars, visit the website.

Energy Exchange is a seminar series hosted by the EMS Energy Institute as part of its outreach mission. The seminars focus on highly relevant energy topics especially in the area of fossil fuels. Energy topics discussed include new innovations in carbon dioxide utilization, clean coal, petroleum and natural gas, and fuel cells. Speakers include Penn State faculty as well as government and industry professionals.

The seminars are held every other Wednesday in C213 Coal Utilization Laboratory at the EMS Energy Instittue from 10 to 11 a.m. Please join us a half hour before the lecture for refreshments. Seminars are open to everyone.
