Laying the groundwork for agricultural use of groundsource energy

Just a few feet below the surface of the Earth — seasonally baked dry in summer’s heat and frozen solid in icy winter months — the soil remains a stable 55 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on the location. This constant temperature represents an incredible source of environmentally friendly, sustainable energy to heat and cool […]

Nanoantenna reinvents solar energy

The yellow dwarf star at the center of our solar system that reliably illuminates and warms this planet was considered a deity in ancient cultures. The science behind the sun’s energy only gradually occurred to the curious and the ingenious. Today, the ability to harvest solar energy is viewed as one of the foremost solutions […]

Under pressure and in hot water: biomass to gas

As members of a carbon resource dependent culture gazing into our uncertain energy future, we are daily inundated with stories on topics of high fuel prices, pollution, global warming and energy alternatives that are less than economically feasible or that might even be socially irresponsible. But William “Bill” Jacoby, an associate professor of biological engineering […]

Mizzou Engineers celebrate E-week at St. Louis Science Center
