“Fueling Our Future Transportation Needs”

The Western Maryland local section of the American Chemistry Society and the Department of Chemistry at Frostburg State University will present a seminar titled “Fueling Our Future Transportation Needs” by Bill Chamberlin. This event will review past failed efforts to change our fuel sources and assess options for our future.

            Conventional transportation fuels are becoming strained, making the search for alternative methods, especially domestically sourced fuel, more aggressive. While availability and cost are critical; safety, environmental impact, storage properties, infrastructure and national security issues must be considered.

            Chamberlin, who was recognized as the Outstanding Chemist of the Year by the Northeast Ohio American Chemical Society Section in 2003, will lead the seminar. He has 34 years in advanced crankcase lubricant applications. He earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in chemistry from Miami University of Ohio, he holds 15 patents and has authored or co-authored 19 papers.
