(University of Missouri - Columbia Institute of Public Policy, 2004)
Powerpoint presentation assembled by David C. Valentine concerning advocacy in the Missouri General Assembly. Data is portrayed in charts, tables, and graphs.
Alliance for Collaborative Research in Alternative Fuel Technology (ALL-CRAFT)
ALL-CRAFT (http://all-craft.missouri.edu) is a partnership of the University of Missouri,Columbia (MU, lead institution) and Midwest Research Institute (MRI), Kansas City, to developlow-pressure, high-capacity storage ...
Energy Materials: Meeting the Challenge
Increasing awareness of environmental factors and limited energy resources have led to a profound evolution in the way we view the generation and supply of energy. Although fossil and nuclear sources will remain the most ...
Bio-Energy Production from Anaerobic Digestion of Animal and Farm Wastes
US produces annually huge amount of animal and farm wastes (e.g. only cow manure in amount of about 1.8 billion tons). These wastes can be valuable source of renewable energy besides overcoming the environmental problems ...
Small Hydropower Potential in Missouri
The overall objective of this research is to advance our understanding of how, and to what degree, small hydropower development can aid in the fight against global warming. The leading cause of climate change today is ...
Nanocatalysis for Energy
Energy is not only the driver for improving the quality of human life but also critical to our survival. To power the planet for a better future, both effective use of energy and development of sustainable and clean energy ...
Implementation of Advanced Fuels and Combustion for Internal Combustion Engines
Advanced engine designs for transportation has shown significant reduction in engine-out emissions while simultaneously achieving gains in fuel efficiency by using Low Temperature Combustion (LTC) modes and feedback control ...
Epitaxial Electrodeposition of Metal Oxide Thin Films and Superlattices for Energy Conversion and Storage
Electrodeposition, like biomineralization, is a soft solution processing method in which inorganic materials are produced from solution precursors. The technique provides degrees of freedom that are not accessible to UHV ...
Is sustainable energy development possible?: It's not easy being green
This presentation addresses aspects of sustainable energy development and ecological engineering, focusing on "green chemistry" or using engineering processes and products holistically.
Future Renewable Energy Delivery and Management (FREEDM) Systems
The mission of the FREEDM engineering research center is to develop the fundamental and enabling technology to demonstrate the FREEDM system and through such development and demonstration, foster a revolution in innovation ...
Missouri S&T Hydrogen Fuel Cell EcoCAR
Today, the automotive industry is at a crossroads during the worst economic downturn in 75 years. Particularly frustrating is that this crisis struck just at a time when these companies were successfully restructuring ...
Using a PV system to power an emergency water disinfection system
Emergency relief efforts commonly include the provision of safe drinking water to populationswhose normal water supplies have been disrupted. An alternative to the shipment of bottledwater to the impacted areas is the ...
A Research Program on Very High Temperature Reactors
Prismatic and pebble bed very high-temperature reactors (VHTRs) are very attractive both from a thermodynamic efficiency viewpoint and hydrogen-production capability. This project addresses numerous challenges associated ...
Next Generation Neutron Detection for Next Generation Nuclear Reactors
As the demand for nuclear energy increases worldwide, and MO reactors come online, so does the availability of spent fuel that may be used as a medium of terror. That is, fuel for and waste or byproducts from fissile ...
A Research Program Nuclear Energy Conversion
Direct conversion of nuclear energy to electricity has been a challenging problem since the inception of the generation of electricity from nuclear reactions. The development of wide bandgap, p-n junctions in materials ...
Hydrogen Generation via Novel Supercritical Water Reformation Technology
A novel, robust, fuel reformation technology has been developed for portable, mobile, stationary, and on-site generation of hydrogen from a variety of feedstocks involving both renewable and nonrenewable resources. Unlike ...
Green, Sustainable, Energy Efficient, Cost-Effective Refrigerated Storage Facilities
A green, sustainable, energy efficient, cost-effective refrigerated storage facility is defined as a structure that maintains a safe and appropriate environment for the storage of perishable food items while limiting its ...
Algae Photobioreactor Design Considerations for Commercial Scale Production
Recent growth in the biofuels industry (ethanol and biodiesel) has put market pressures on agricultural feedstock supplies, primarily corn and soybeans. In order for the biofuels industry to sustain and continue to grow, ...
