A sustainable approach to solving Ghana’s Energy Challenges: Computational and Molecular Modeling. A sustainable approach to solving Ghana’s Energy Challenges: Computational and Molecular Modeling
Since February 2015, a team of researchers led by Prof. Evans Adei (KNUST) and Dr. Johannes Awudza (KNUST) are poised to address two major energy needs. The first is the development of a novel catalysts for the conversion of biomass to fuel and/or chemical feedstock; and the second is to design of an optimized conducting polymers for efficient solar energy applications. This project housed in the Chemistry Department, KNUST by the Computational and Molecular Modeling laboratory. Other collaborators for this research include Prof. Nora de Leeuw (University College London), Prof. Wendimagegn M. Deneke (Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia) and Prof. Olayinka Oyetunji (University of Botswana).
