The Workshop on Energy and Transportation took place on January 7-9, 2002, in Washington, DC. This workshop was the second in a series of workshops that comprise the study Challenges in the Chemical Sciences in the 21st Century. The purpose of this study was to carry out a survey of the current status of the chemical sciences, including chemistry and chemical engineering, and its interfaces with other disciplines such as mechanical engineering, physics, materials science, and the biological sciences. The goal of the study was to assess trends across these broad fields and identify key opportunities and challenges.
The Workshop on Energy and Transportation had as its specific focus the contribution that the chemical sciences could make in the development of both emerging and traditional energy sources as well as new and improved transportation. The workshop was attended by approximately 100 individuals from industry, academia, and the federal government with expertise in the chemical sciences. A series of presenters covered issues related to use of the chemical sciences to meet challenges in the areas of energy and transportation. The ideas and challenges identified in the presentations were used as a starting point for breakout sessions, where the participants further developed concepts and needs and identified opportunities. All of this material, from both the presentations and the breakout sessions, were used by the committee as the basis for this report.
The summaries of the presentations in this report contain the opinions expressed by the speakers. Sidebars are included in these presentation summaries to highlight topics of interest related to the presentations. These sidebars were authored by the committee and were based on feedback received by the committee by the workshop participants. The final chapter of this report contains challenges identified by the committee. These challenges are based on the presentations and the feedback from the workshop participants. While the committee relied on this feedback to identify the challenges, sole responsibility for these statements rests with the organizing committee.
