Center of Excellence of Nanomaterial for Clean Energy applications (CENCEA)
Majed graduated from King Saud University in Riyadh with a B.S. in chemical engineering in 2017. Majed’s graduation project was entitled, “Production of Toluene from Light Reformate.” He has an electrochemistry background due to the elective courses that he took in college.
Now, Majed works for KACST at the Center of Excellence for Nanomaterial for Clean Energy Applications (CENCEA) as a researcher. CENCEA’s team works on several projects including carbon dioxide conversion and capture, water harvesting, and hydrogen storage. In his specific project, he uses and develops porous crystalline materials, such as metal organic frameworks (MOFs), that can work on specific tasks, such as converting the CO2 from power plants for clean applications.
