Speaker to discuss transportation without petroleum
Monday, September 15, 2008
CANTON, Mo. – Culver-Stockton College will host a presentation about petroleum alternatives at 7:25 p.m. October 24 in room 208 of the C-SC Science Building during a meeting of the American Chemical Society. Speaker is William B. Chamberlin, retired principal research scientist of The Lubrizol Corporation, who will speak on “Fueling Our Transportation Needs without Petroleum.” The presentation is free and open to the public.
Chamberlin was involved in advanced crankcase lubricant applications at Lubrizol where he worked for 34 years researching rotary engines, direct injection two-strokes, and alternatively fueled engines. In 2003 he was recognized as the Outstanding Chemist of the Year by the Northeast Ohio ACS Section. Chamberlin holds 11 patents and has authored or coauthored 19 papers. He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in chemistry from Miami University (Ohio).
“Our society has diverse energy choices. While availability and cost are concerns; safety, environmental impact and infrastructure must also be considered,” said Chamberlin. “This presentation will compare alternative fuels, fuel cells, electric power, and advanced conventional technologies such as alternative fuels for diesel, in order to better understand the technical challenges and political consequences.”
