David Sholl, a professor in Georgia Tech’s School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (ChBE), is leading a new Energy Earthshot Research Center (EERC) at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) that is focused on developing chemical processes that use sustainable methods instead of burning fossil fuels to radically reduce industrial greenhouse gas emissions to stem climate change and limit the crisis of a rapidly warming planet.

Sholl, who is director of ORNL’s Transformational Decarbonization Initiative, is director of the ORNL-led Non-Equilibrium Energy Transfer for Efficient Reactions (NEETER), which also involves ChBE faculty members Fani Boukouvala and Carsten Sievers as key members.

NEETER is one of two new DoE EERCs involving ChBE faculty; the other (co-led by Professor David Flaherty) is Harnessing Electrostatics for the Conversion of Organics, Water and Air: Driving Redox on Particulate Liquids Earthshot (DROPLETS).
