GOV. CARNEY TOURS BIOPHARMACEUTICAL BUILDING SITE: Part of UD’s STAR Campus, the facility will be a center for research on producing complex medication

Feb. 07, 2019--Sporting white hard hats, bright safety vests and protective goggles, Delaware Gov. John Carney and a small group of officials visited the construction site of the University of Delaware’s Ammon Pinizzotto Biopharmaceutical Innovation Center on Tuesday, Feb. 5. The tour offered a glimpse into the future of growth and innovation at the University.

GradImpact: Improving Battery Performance while Maintaining Safety and Stability

Feb. 01, 2019--Researchers at the University of Delaware-led Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation (CCEI) and investigators from its partner institutions are working to solve these problems. Their findings report a strategy to create renewable lubricant base oils efficiently from non-food biomass — things like wood, switchgrass and other sustainable, organic waste — and fatty acids, which are present in used vegetable oils and animal fat.

GradImpact: Improving Battery Performance while Maintaining Safety and Stability

Jan. 18, 2019--Priyanka Ketkar, a doctoral student in chemical and biomolecular engineering at the University of Delaware, is working to create a battery that takes minutes to fully charge. Ketkar, as part of the Epps Research Group, intends to produce flexible, safer, faster-charging batteries.

COE Student Spotlight: Elaine Stewart

Jan. 15, 2019--Many engineers dream of working for NASA someday, and chemical engineer Elaine Stewart didn’t wait for graduation to start that mission.

RECOGNITION FOR BIOTECHNOLOGY INFLUENCER: Kelvin Lee receives Marvin J. Johnson Award in Microbial and Biochemical Technology

Jan. 14, 2019--As the director of NIIMBL, the National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals, Kelvin Lee is a changemaker in the biomanufacturing industry, which has the potential to save lives, improve national security, and increase economic development in the United States.

COULD TERMITES POWER A ‘CLEAN COAL’ REVOLUTION?: Termite-gut microbes extract clean energy from coal

Jan. 07, 2019--Termites generally don’t elicit a whole lot of love. But surprisingly, this wood-eating insect may hold the key to transforming coal — a big polluting chunk of the global energy supply — into cleaner energy for the world, according to University of Delaware researchers.

GREENER HYDROGEN FROM WATER: UD innovator explores catalysts that pull their weight and serve the environment

Jan. 03, 2019-- In a paper published in the journal Science Advances, Chen-Jiao, an associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering and associate director of the Center for Catalytic Science and Technology at UD, wasn’t always interested in water electrolysis, which uses electricity to reduce water into hydrogen gas and oxygen molecules. When he first joined the UD faculty in 2010, his research program focused on the energy storage capability of batteries.
