Mizzou Engineering researcher helps turn food wastes into biodegradable plastics
A Mizzou Engineer is helping researchers at Virginia Tech develop a process to convert food wastes into biodegradable plastics. Caixia “Ellen” Wan is an associate professor of chemical and biomedical Engineering and a bioprocess engineer. She’s part of a team that received a $2.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to upscale bioplastic production with the goal of replacing petroleum-based plastics while also keeping leftovers out of landfills.

Mizzou SWE: ‘A place for everyone’
Mizzou's chapter of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) fosters a community that empowers women in engineering while also inspiring future generations.
Students explore future internships, jobs at Engineering Career Fair
Mechanical Engineering student Brooke Becker already has an internship for the summer, but she was eager to take an active role in the Spring 2023 Engineering Career Fair. “I’m looking forward to talking to as many companies as I can,” Becker said prior to the event on March 2. “I also signed up to be a fair volunteer, and I’m happy to be able to help out and give back to other students, especially after attending every other fair during my college experience and benefitting from it.”
Missouri Water Center works to monitor water quality, quantities; train students
When it comes to water, there are a lot of stakeholders. Not only do we all need access to clean water—including fish and wildlife—but local economies rely on lakes and rivers for agriculture and tourism. When there’s not enough, droughts can destroy a year’s worth of crops. Too much can cause flooding that devastates communities. With those factors in mind, Mizzou established the Missouri Water Center a year ago, merging two former centers.
Wear and forget: an ultrasoft material for on-skin health devices
Zheng Yan and a team of researchers at the University of Missouri may have a solution. They have created an ultrasoft “skin-like” material — that’s both breathable and stretchable — for use in the development of an on-skin, wearable bioelectronic device.
