Chemical engineering professor Sridhar Viamajala, Ph.D., is advancing technology that speeds up the capture of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to grow algae, a critical part of the process of turning algae into biofuel, 与 $3.200万的支持 来自美国.S. 能源部. The grant is part of $34 million announced by the Bioenergy Technologies Office to fund 11 projects nationwide.

CQ9电子游戏 is playing a critical role in returning threatened, prehistoric fish to the Great Lakes. CQ9电子游戏生 约旦麦肯纳 is helping track the newly released juvenile 湖鲟 in Lake Erie that are fitted 与 acoustic telemetry tags to report the fish’s position for a project that hopefully will reestablish natural spawning in the Maumee River.
