APRIL 14: LEARN ABOUT NIIMBL, RAPID: Presentation set on NIIMBL and Rapid USA Manufacturing Institutes
Apr. 14, 2017--A public presentation on NIIMBL and RAPID, two USA Manufacturing Institutes in which the University of Delaware is playing key roles, will be held at 4 p.m., Friday, April 14, in the Trabant University Center Theater. All are welcome to attend.
Mar. 14, 2017--The University’s chemical engineering program continues to rank among the nation’s premier graduate programs, and moved up three spots from last year. The program is tied at No. 6 with the Georgia Institute of Technology, Princeton University, the University of Texas, Austin, and the University of Wisconsin, Madison. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology was U.S. News’ top-ranked program.
Mar. 13, 2017--The hipsters, thought leaders and innovators attending the South by Southwest (SXSW) Festival in Austin, Texas, this week are being introduced to some University of Delaware innovation that’s designed to help people both here on the ground and rocketing off into space. In a video being premiered by the American Chemical Society at SXSW, UD professor Norman Wagner and his interdisciplinary team’s work with shear thickening fluids is showcased — in applications ranging from bullet-proof vests, to needlestick-resistant surgical gloves, concussion-resistant helmets, next-generation prosthetics and even spacesuits.
Feb. 23, 2017--Modern society’s extensive use of fossil fuels has led to unprecedented atmospheric carbon dioxide levels with widespread climate impacts. Carbon dioxide capture and sequestration is one of the technologies under investigation to mitigate CO2 emissions associated with coal-fired power plants. However, according to the University of Delaware’s Feng Jiao, large-scale CO2 sequestration poses risks to the environment from leakage. Other disadvantages include limited efficient geological repositories and high transportation and compression costs.
GO AWAY GREENHOUSE GAS: NSF Career Award to focus on electrochemical reduction of atmospheric carbon dioxide
Feb. 15, 2017--The University of Delaware’s Bingjun Xu has received a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development Award to address electrochemical reduction of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. The five-year, $523,000 grant, "Elucidating Molecular Level Interplay Between Catalysts and Electrolytes in Electrochemical Reduction of CO2," was awarded through NSF’s Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental, and Transport Systems.
Feb. 13, 2017--The University of Delaware’s Dion Vlachos, who has been named the Allan and Myra Ferguson Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, will deliver his inaugural lecture at 4 p.m., Monday, April 17, in Room 104 Gore Hall. A reception will follow at 5 p.m. in the DuPont Hall Lobby. Those who plan to attend should RSVP by email to Sue Zatto.
