Paul Mobley

Research chemical engineer


PhD, Mechanical Engineering, Stanford University
MS, Mechanical Engineering, Stanford University
BS, Mechanical Engineering, North Carolina State University

Paul Mobley is an expert on energy technology who contributes to our research into sustainable energy supplies. He has provided engineering expertise and leadership to several projects focused on CO2 capture and CO2 utilization using novel solvents and sorbents. He combines an academic background in thermodynamics, fluid flow, heat transfer, and combustion with extensive experimental and modeling experience.

Dr. Mobley currently serves as the engineering lead on a project to develop a non-aqueous solvent for carbon capture in coal-fired power plants with a low energy penalty. He has led the process design of this technology from the bench-scale testing at RTI to a larger pilot unit in collaboration with researchers in Norway. Within the current project, Dr. Mobley will lead testing of the non-aqueous solvent and new process configurations in the 12 MW facility at Technology Centre Mongstad in Norway. 

Dr. Mobley has also participated in our interdisciplinary drone research program. He developed a MATLAB model that evaluated algorithms for using a swarm of unmanned aircraft to find and track a meandering aerosol plume. He has also led development of a rigorous, yet flexible, decision-aiding model that could assist in planning and executing off-grid renewable energy deployment.

Dr. Mobley joined RTI in 2012. He is a licensed professional engineer and a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
