Videopresentation of the Scientific Moment (04-08-2017) in Chemical Engineering. We discuss CO2 capture in a broader sense and an initial analysis of the constituent parts of CO2 capture, transport, and storage. I envourage you to reasearch the topic and to ask me questions below, if you are interested.

Videopresentazione del Scientific Moment (04-08-2017) in Ingegneria Chimica. Si parla di cattura di delle CO2 in senso ampio e un iniziale analisi sulle parti costituenti della cattura, trasporto, e stoccaggio della CO2. Vi incoraggio a ricercare altre informazioni a riguardo e di farmi domande nei commenti, se vi interessa.

Videopresentazione del Scientific Moment (27-12-2016) in Ingegneria Chimica. L'argomento è lil funzionamento dei frigoriferi e per capire ciò andremo a vedere le differenze trsa stati della materia (id est, vapori e gas) e come questi siano indispensabili al funzionamento del ciclio frigorifero. Ho preparato questa presentazione per chiarire qualche concetto sui vapori e gas che potrebbero non essere poi così intuitivi e spero di essere chiaro abbastanza.

I like to explore topics in science and then delve into sci-fi speculations. I also comment on and discuss politics and social policy with a science-informed attitude. The core objective of this channel is to discuss elements that are not regularly in the mainstream news, distill knowledge, and create a community that brings everyone complementary knowledge.
