New Research into CO2 Emissions

New Research into CO2 Emissions

Because of concerns about global warming, scientists have been working to develop ways to capture, store and use the carbon dioxide that fossil fuel industries emit during energy production.

A Washington State University research team developed a way to create hollow, nanorod‑shaped porous materials made of cobalt metal ions and organic molecules to separate the carbon dioxide in a way that works under real‑life conditions.

Carbon capture systems have to be able to selectively grab carbon dioxide out of the exhaust gases under the dynamic conditions that exist in a power plant. At the same time, such systems need to be inexpensive and energy efficient.

Previously, she was a Business development Manager and a Knowledge Management Expert specializing in ontology engineering and linked data management at a world leading technology provider. She was instrumental in the successful winning and knowledge modelling of large data integration and management projects such as the Semantic Knowledge Base for The National Archive of the United Kingdom and Research Space for the British Museum, as well as European FP7 projects such as Europeana Creative and Multisensor. Her work focuses on the design and development of data integration infrastructures which allow efficient querying, access and navigation over linked data. She has managed the building of the official experimental Europeana SPARQL endpoint holding Europeana semantic data. Mariana holds a PhD from the University of Stuttgart and teaches semantic technologies and multimedia at the New Bulgarian University in Sofia. She regularly reviews books and articles for ACM and has authored books and scientific articles in linguistics and semantic technologies. She has successfully lead international interdisciplinary teams and projects carrying technological risks, driven and managed change in engineering and operational contexts in North America and in Europe, and acquired the ability to leverage marketing requirements with knowledge intense technological solutions.
