Methane leaks from abandoned oil and gas wells underestimated

When Mary Kang landed an environmental policy fellowship at Princeton University in 2012, she decided to model methane emissions from abandoned oil and gas wells. It didn’t take long to discover a major roadblock. “I couldn’t find any data. And you need data for modelling,” recalls Kang, now a civil engineering professor at McGill University.

Update from Can. J. Chem. Eng.

ChemiSTEAM 2020: Metal–Organic Rose

The unique structure in my ChemiSTEAM image – analogous to a rose – highlights the imperfections in a MOF. Contrary to the expected smooth outcome, the crystallization process gave rise to textured MOF layers that correlate to an irregular morphology which can be appreciated in many ways, as there can be key findings to take away from it.
