Abstract
The surge in internal oil/gas production in the United States leading to projected energy independence by 2035 is singlehandedly due to the development of unconventional reservoirs known as oil/gas shales. The key for the widespread exploitations of oil and gas shales is due to the massive technological deployment of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing (also known as “fracking”). Contrasting the “oil/gas revolution” is the concern for the environmental impact and the sustainability of these extraction practices during well completion, oil/gas extraction, and disposal of drilling materials. In this talk, we will review the impact of the development of unconventional resources in the current energy market in the United States, as well as the current extraction practices and their environmental limitations from a Materials Science perspective. Through such limitations, we will highlight the technological opportunities in improving the sustainability of the extraction process, as well in minimizing the environmental footprint in current practices. In looking at the post-fossil fuel world, we will conclude by showing that understanding the complexity of organic shales (in terms of organic heterogeneity) can open a new venue of scientific and technological development of organic geomaterials in renewable energy applications, such as photovoltaics and geothermal energy generation

Biography
Nicola Ferralis is currently a Research Scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is the Director of Experimental Research in the Energy Materials Research Group, in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at MIT. He received his BS/MS in Physics from the University of Padova, Italy and a PhD in Condensed Matter Physics at the Pennsylvania State University. As a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, he investigated growth mechanisms and surface phenomena during the synthesis of nanomaterials, such as silicon nanowires, gold nanoparticles and carbon-based nanomaterials such as C60 and graphene. The current focus of his research program is on the development and characterization of novel carbon-based materials and technologies for the next generation of integrated energy systems, from fossil fuels to photovoltaics, thermoelectrics and geothermal systems. His interest in carbonaceous materials extends to the understanding of preservation mechanisms in biomarkers in early Archaean biosystems for geo- and astrobiology.
