Researchers at the University of Missouri, including members of the Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Department, identified the most efficient ways states can partner to maximize renewable energy and cut carbon emissions.
Baolin Deng, C.W. LaPierre Professor of civil and environmental engineering, will serve on the Environmental Protection Agency Science Advisory Board’s Drinking Water Committee until 2018. He’ll also serve on a task force to update the Missouri Water Plan, an effort being undertaken by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
Silver nanoparticles have a wide array of uses, one of which is to treat drinking water for harmful bacteria and viruses. But do silver nanoparticles also kill off potentially beneficial bacteria or cause other harmful effects to water-based ecosystems? A new paper from a team of University of Missouri College of Engineering researchers says that’s not the case.
MU bioengineering Associate Professor William Jacoby has been exploring the possibility of tackling the problem of effective and affordable carbon-capture and storage technology for fossil fuel power plants with the development of a high pressure, density-driven separator (HDS) in his lab, the Mizzou Carbon Recycling Center.
A University of Missouri bioengineering capstone team was one of just 42 selected to participate in the Environmental Protection Agency People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) Design Competition for Sustainability in April in Alexandria, Va.
WorldWideLearn.com, an online directory providing potential students with information on hundreds of colleges and universities, named MU’s Bioengineering Department as one of “15 Environmental Programs That Just Might Save the World.”
