Sep 29, 2020 (AmericaNewsHour) —
Global Steam Methane Reforming Market was valued at USD 600 Million in the year 2019. Global Steam Methane Reforming Market is further estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3% from 2019 to reach USD 710 Million by the year 2025. Steam Methane Reforming, or SMR, processes feedstocks, ranging from natural gas to light naphtha, mixed with steam to produce a hydrogen rich syngas effluent, with a typical H2/CO ratio of 3:1 to 5:1. SMR based plants are most commonly used to produce a hydrogen product or a combination of a hydrogen stream and another syngas product. In an SMR based plant, a heated mixture of the hydrocarbon feedstock and steam flows through catalyst filled tubes within a fired furnace called a reformer. The report covers large and medium SMR with hydrogen … Read More

Romanna Flores Shares How The Program Uses Music To Teach Latinx Students About STEAM

Romanna Flores is an IT Systems Analyst at Intel and as of this summer the cofounder of Mariachi STEAM, a summer program for young Latinx musicians that is dedicated to connecting the dots between science, technology, engineering, mathematics and music. 

“I like to say that I did not choose this career but that this career chose me,” shares Flores. “Every industry that I entered started with a creative focus and then evolved to a more technical position allowing me to create innovative, digital interactions. My willingness to learn and experiment with emerging technologies was embraced by application teams who welcomed a different perspective to problem-solving.” 

With Mariachi STEAM, Flores and her cofounder Richard Flores are hoping to cultivate the same encouraging, informative environment for Latinx students.

“Richard Flores and I both witnessed lack-of-representation
