Chemours Celebrates Black History Month With 'Chemhistory' in the Making

Multimedia from this Release

As a lithium-ion battery researcher, Crystal K. Waters’ goal is to understand the chemistries that lead to safe, longer-lasting batteries for energy storage applications. She is one of very few Black female PhDs in this space. Crystal shared advice for future chemistry scholars who will innovate solutions for a more sustainable future.

The future of engineering is promising because of people like 2020 Chemours’ Future of Chemistry Scholarship recipient Chloe Barrow. She is pursuing a mechanical engineering degree at North Carolina A&T University and joined us as a summer intern at our Chambers Works site.

Production Leader Cameron Armbrester uses his engineering background to ensure we are good stewards to the communities where we operate.

Once he finishes his studies at Delaware State University, Chemours’ Future of Chemistry Scholarship recipient Elijah Atley plans to become an environmental engineer. He decided to pursue engineering to work on projects that bring people together & improve our world—responsibly.
