Keynote Lecture: " Renewable Energy Production from Municipal Solid Waste "
Dr. Elsayed Elbeshbishy is an assistant professor at Ryerson University. He is collaborating with different Canadian industries and municipalities for developing new technologies for value-added products recovery from wastes. He investigated different pretreatment technologies for enhancement of biohydrogen and biomethane production from municipal solid wastes. He introduced ultrasonication, for the first time, as a novel pretreatment method for enhancing biohydrogen production from solid waste as opposed to the common application of ultrasonication prior to anaerobic digestion to enhance methane formation. He has more than 50 peer reviewed journal article, 70 conference proceeding, and three book chapters with h-index of 22. Dr. Elbeshbishy focuses in developing new solid pre-treatment technologies to enhance the anaerobic digestion process
According to dictionary.com, a resource is a source of supply, support, or aid, especially one that can be readily drawn upon when needed. As for energy, it is the capacity for vigorous activity; available power. The example given by dictrionary.com, I eat chocolate to get quick energy, is particularly appropriate. As such, the ENERGY AND RESOURCES FOR TOMORROW 2019 symposium at the University of Windsor will bring together energy and resources enthusiasts and experts from academia, industry, and policy arenas to uncover the challenges and solutions to ensuring sustainable energy and resources for tomorrow. This symposium will disseminate the most recent advances in these field and promote collaborations to maximize opportunities for innovative solutions.
Possible topics include: advanced energy technologies, biomass and biofuels, climate change solutions, conservation, energy resources management and development, green buildings, oil and gas clean technologies, pollution prevention, smart grids, sustainable exploitation of resources...
