Optimal Utilization of Carbon Resources (OUCR)
  1. Research Directions
    The goal of the division is to serve the needs of the national energy strategy and lead the international energy technology. On the basis of the combination of chemistry, physics, materials, engineering, and other disciplines, the division mainly focuses on the research of highly efficient conversion of coal/gas, mechanism of the efficient and direct conversion of energy-carrier molecules, new energy systems, surface physicochemical process of energy materials, and then resolving the key scientific and technological issues for the optimal utilization of carbon resources.
