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.
The University of Missouri College of Engineering was well represented at the Spring 2014 Undergraduate Research & Creative Achievements Forum April 22.
A biological professor and his team of researchers have been examining the use of supercritical water to process biomass and other wastes as part of a collaborative project with Duke University.
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 […]
Energy experts agreed during a recent symposium cosponsored by the College of Engineering that America’s future fuel needs must be met with a mix of renewable and traditional resources. “Thermochemical conversion can produce energy, fuels and chemicals from the full spectrum of biomass resources.”—Bill Jacoby However, a CoE member of the symposium believes that the […]
