Join the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Bioenergy Technologies Office’s (BETO’s) Chemical Catalysis for Bioenergy Consortium (ChemCatBio) on October 13, 2021, 12–12:45 p.m. MT for a webinar on the Catalyst Property Database (CPD).
The CPD is a free and public resource designed in response to the observation that when data—such as computed reaction energetics—are used in catalyst design, they are almost always generated by the researchers seeking to use it, even if similar data has been published previously. One barrier to data reuse that results in this duplication of effort is the difficult process of finding and applying published data, which can be slow, error-prone, and manual.
The CPD seeks to overcome these challenges by creating a centralized, searchable database of quality catalyst property data.
In this webinar, “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Data Benchmarking and Accessibility for Faster Research With the Catalyst Property Database,” Kurt Van Allsburg from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory will share the motivations for the CPD, how to search and upload data, applications, and future plans to grow types and quantity of data.
The webinar will end with a Q&A session; comments and questions are welcome. Register now!
ChemCatBio is a BETO-funded collaborative and interdisciplinary effort among eight DOE national laboratories. The mission of the consortium is to accelerate the catalyst and process development cycle for bioenergy applications.
