How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Dan Hussain is an inventor, entrepreneur and patent agent who comes from a diverse, multicultural background which has inspired his creativity to attack world-wide problems like climate change and global healthcare. Dan co-invented over 20 issued patents critical to the industrial internet. Dan is currently doing research in carbon sequestration via enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and carbon-neutral liquid fuels production through Pioneer Energy (www.pioneerenergy.com) and CMU.

Recent advances in cell culture technology have created significant pressure on the downstream purification process, leading to a "downstream bottleneck" in the production of recombinant therapeutic proteins for the treatment of cancer, genetic disorders, and cardiovascular disease. Countercurrent tangential chromatography overcomes many of the lim...
This study uses a process lifecycle inventory (LCI) to compare the lifecycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) operations using different sources for CO2 and to non-CO2 EOR methods. All EOR techniques were compared to the base case of natural-source CO2-EOR, which had net emissions of 0.52 +/- 0.03 metric tons of CO2-e p...
