Energy Materials

Developing alternative energy sources is critical for national energy security and to reduce greenhouse gases. Statler College researchers seek to improve turbine efficiency by developing high temperature alloys/composites. One NSF grant of $1.5 million will help study fuel cell, battery and chemical processing to capture and utilize carbon dioxide in a closed loop. Currently, there are five projects funded by the U.S. Department of Energy in the College, aimed at developing technologies on thermal-chemical and electrochemical generation of hydrogen.
