Improving the production of hydrogen through solar power
U-M ChE Assistant Professor Nirala Singh has received funding to help improve the efficiency of producing hydrogen fuel through solar power. The research is part of a sponsored agreement between SunHydrogen, Inc. and U-M.
War and Professorship
U-M College of Engineering honors Suljo Linic on his amazing journey to the Martin Lewis Perl Collegiate Professor of Chemical Engineering.
Solving the plastic shortage
New catalyst could stabilize supplies of one of the world’s most important plastics.
Sustainable biofuel: Design principles for bioengineered microbe catalysts
The US has been stuck on corn kernels for producing ethanol, rather than woody “cellulosic” material. Efficient microbes for converting cellulose to biofuel could change the game.
Harnessing light to drive chemical reactions
The mechanism transferring light energy from capturer to catalyst is explained, paving the way to design better reactions that use less energy and produce less waste.
