Ms. Kerryanne M. Leroux
POSITION: Principal Engineer

Kerryanne M. Leroux, Principal Engineer, holds M.S. and B.S. degrees in Chemical Engineering from UND. Ms. Leroux leads teams of scientists and engineers integrating carbon capture and storage (CCS) systems with fossil and renewable energy, such as enhanced oil recovery (EOR), coal-generated electricity, and ethanol fuel production. Specific technical support has included assessment of CO2 capture technologies and transportation; implementing and evaluating near-surface and downhole monitoring concepts for large-scale (>1 million tons/year) carbon storage; and techno-economic evaluation of CCS applicability for state and federal CO2-reduction incentive programs. Ms. Leroux has also researched natural gas, refined petroleum (gasoline, diesel, propane), biomass (wood, agricultural residues, grasses/straws), combustion, gasification, syngas cleanup (tars, membrane separation), catalysis (steam methane reforming, water-gas shift, Fischer-Tropsch), cogeneration/combined heat and power, electrolysis, energy storage, wind hybrid systems, pyrolysis, biodiesel, ethanol, hydrogen, ammonia, biogas and landfill gas, and densification (pellets, torrefaction). Additionally, Ms. Leroux has provided technical support for management of solid waste (municipal and inert recycling and reduction) and water (drinking/wastewater treatment, processing [e.g., cooling systems], flood mitigation). Ms. Leroux's areas of interest and expertise also include resource and life cycle assessments; process design and pilot/demonstration/commercial-scale testing; statistical interpretation, data processing, and modeling; and technical feasibility, economic analysis, and market evaluation. She has coauthored numerous professional publications and presentations.
