PA Infrastructure Technology Alliance & the Oil & Gas Industry: Part I
1:00pm - 2:00pm
Calling all manufacturers who work in the oil & gas industry, hydraulic fracturing, wastewater treatment, environmental pollution monitoring, nanotechnology… During the next two webinars of our series, you will hear about several oil & gas industry technologies in development at CMU funded by the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Technology Alliance (PITA) and how manufacturers like you can be a partner in those research activities. You can participate in one or both of the webinars.
May 29th 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. Wireless Ultrasonic Detection of Defects in Clad-Steel Pressure Vessels & Using Mobile Labs to Characterize Methane & Other Emissions from Natural Gas Productions
Detecting deep erosion losses in spatially complex frac iron components is a highest-priority need voiced by the industry, along with studying and characterizing methane, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) from the production of shale gas. Both of which are investigated in this PITA funded research.

June 5th 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. is the second webinar in the series titled Water Treatment Process: Optimized Multi-Scale/Multi-Phenomena Modeling of Membrane Distillation for more information and to register click here:
In both webinars, you will also learn about the PITA program and how your company can be a partner in the program. PITA is a Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) program that has led to the creation and implementation of numerous cutting-edge technologies in PA companies and have also enabled several start-up companies to form within the Commonwealth. CMU’s Institute for Complex Engineered Systems (ICES) is a collaborator with PITA.
