Maria Assunta Navarra is pleased to invite you to the seminar
Towards Harnessing Local Resources in Sustainable development technology
University Abdelmalek Essâadi, Tangier, Morocco
The seminar will be held in Room B, first floor - S. Cannizzaro building CU014, Tuesday 31st January at 12.00 am.
It can be followed in person or remotely on the Zoom platform (link: https://uniroma1.zoom.us/skype/6874292109).
The seminar is devoted to the valorization of local resources in sustainable development technology. The first part reviews result concerning valorization of local natural clays with appropriate texture and chemical composition containing mainly aluminosilicates as well as mixture of minerals. Such features enable applications not only as adsorbent but also as catalyst with interesting intrinsic properties. Of interest also, the original aspect regarding easy extrusion as honeycomb monolith and related advantages which may help moving ahead towards industrial applications.
Will be presented also result showing the potential of Argan fruits shells valorization in context of circular economy, as precursor for activated carbons for servals applications; such as sorbent for CO2 capture and H2S removal as well as electrodes for energy storage devices; supercapacitors.

Tarik Chafik holds a PhD in catalytic processes engineering from the University of Lyon-France, 1993. He was Postdoc researcher at University of Patras (Greece) in 1994, then he worked at combustion division at NIRE, AIST, Tsukuba Japan (1995-1997). I 1999 he was awarded as Fulbright visiting researcher at University California Berkeley, USA (with Prof. A. T. Bell).
He is currently, full Professor, Research Director and Master courses coordinator at Faculty of Sciences and Technique of Tangier (Morocco).
He coordinated several research dealing with sustainable development technologies involving local resources as adsorbents and catalysts as well as development of nanomaterials for applications in the field of energy.
