NEW BREW IN QUEST FOR BIOFUEL: Mixotrophy twist leads researchers to higher yields, lower emissions

Sep. 30, 2016--Researchers have identified a promising blend of bacteria and synthesis gas that, in laboratory tests, is producing much more acetone than other methods while avoiding the carbon dioxide emissions dilemma. The acetone is a proof-of-concept project with value of its own, but it also could lead to significant advances in the quest to produce biofuels – renewable, sustainable energy from sources that do not add to the planet's carbon pollution.

LITTLE HYBRIDS: NSF grant supports research on assembly of complex hybrid nanomaterials

Sep. 29, 2016--Funded by a four-year grant from the National Science Foundation, Jayaraman — along with UD’s Darrin Pochan, William Johnson from the University of Utah and Karen Wooley from Texas A&M — will address those challenges so that the potential of these materials can be realized in a broad range of applications.

RENEWABLE ENERGY LEADER: Vlachos appointed Ferguson Professor and UD Energy Institute director

Sep. 19, 2016--Dionisios G. Vlachos has been named the inaugural Allan and Myra Ferguson Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Delaware. He also has been appointed director of the UD Energy Institute.

BETTER FUEL CELL MEMBRANES: UD awarded $1.8 million through new ARPA-E program aimed at transforming energy storage, conversion

Sep. 15, 2016--The University of Delaware has been awarded $1.8 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) through its new IONICS (Integration and Optimization of Novel Ion-Conducting Solids) program. IONICS project teams are paving the way for technologies that overcome the limitations of current battery and fuel cell products. Led by Yushan Yan, Distinguished Professor of Engineering, the research at UD will focus on creating a series of polymer-based hydroxide exchange membranes (HEMs).

Fueling the Quest for Green Energy

Aug. 24, 2016--Watch an introduction to the University of Delaware’s Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation—an Energy Frontier Research Center—as wood chips and cornstalks take on a new shade of "green," converted into new fuels and other products. Featured in the image, CCEI Director Dion Vlachos and doctoral student Hannah Nguyen use a model of a catalyst to discuss its structure and properties.
