Jovan Kamcev receives NAMS Young Membrane Scientist Award
U-M ChE Assistant Professor Jovan Kamcev has received a Young Membrane Scientist Award from the North American Membrane Society (NAMS) for research into developing next-generation membranes for brine concentration via electrodialysis.
$2M to replace fossil fuels with solar power in fertilizer production
The new approach could enable farmers to produce ammonia on-site, and also reduce CO2 emissions from fertilizer production.
Machine learning links material composition and performance in catalysts
Understanding how to design better catalysts could enable sustainable energy tech and make everyday chemicals more environmentally friendly.
Three faculty members awarded a $1.5M DoE grant
Professor Nina Lin, and co-PIs, professors Andrew Allman and Maciek R. Antoniewicz, will be working on this project.
Electron transfer discovery is a step toward viable grid-scale batteries
The liquid electrolytes in flow batteries provide a bridge to help carry electrons into electrodes, and that changes how chemical engineers think about efficiency.
Mirror-like photovoltaics get more electricity out of heat
By reflecting nearly all the light they can’t turn into electricity, they help pave the way for storing renewable energy as heat.
