Fernando Lima, assistant professor of chemical and biomedical engineering at West Virginia University, has earned a prestigious CAREER award from the National Science Foundation for his work to improve modular systems for energy applications. The award comes with $500,000 in funding over a five-year period.
MorphoTrak, a key provider of biometric services to law enforcement and other agencies, will donate access to MorphoCloud, a cloud-based collection of services, to West Virginia University to support the university’s highly-regarded research and education programs in biometrics and forensics.
Self-driving cars use images from on-board cameras to navigate through cities. But what happens when the car’s computer can’t recognize the same image in two different pictures?
The United States Department of Energy has marked an engineering research project at West Virginia University as a high potential opportunity to make a demonstrable impact on the country’s energy portfolio and to do it quickly.
West Virginia University has joined a national effort to turn natural gas into valuable products and do it at the well. This serves a real-world need for many production locations in the Marcellus Shale, especially those in West Virginia, where some shale gas resources are stranded without pipeline infrastructure, affecting access and price.
New WVU study examines pump-to-wheels methane emissions from the natural gas-fueled heavy-duty transportation sector
A study of methane emissions from heavy-duty natural gas-powered vehicles and refueling stations by West Virginia University scientists at the Center for Alternative Fuels, Engines and Emissions, recently published by Environmental Science & Technology, greatly expands on very limited data on methane emissions from natural gas-fueled vehicles. The WVU pump-to-wheels study is the first end-use paper in a collaborative scientific research series designed to measure and better understand the sources and amount of greenhouse-gas methane that is emitted across the natural gas supply chain.
Everyone looks for ways to do more by using less and businesses are no exception, especially when it comes to things like energy and water use.
Pollinators play a significant role in the production of more than 150 food crops in the United States with almost all fruit and grain crops requiring pollination to produce their crop. Pollinators come in all shapes and sizes and if a research team from West Virginia University has its way, they may also one day come in the form of a robot.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory recently awarded West Virginia University a project to survey acid mine drainage solids to identify the concentration and amount of rare earth elements available in AMD solids.
