Former CEBC student presents industry colloquium

Friday, January 31, 2014

students with industry speakerLess than ten years ago, Hong Jin was attending CEBC Industry Colloquia as a PhD student. In January 2014, she returned to present a colloquium, “Life Cycle Assessment and Its Value in Decision-Making.”

Dr. Jin is the project manager for life cycle assessments (LCA) at Chevron Energy Technology Co. in Houston, Texas. She has led various industrial LCA initiatives and has served on several government panels. In her presentation at CEBC, Jin used “what if” scenarios to demonstrate how LCA provides a holistic view of chemical production processes, noting that “demonstrating environmental stewardship can be very important to help a company win a bid to do business with or in a country.”
