How one engineer has tackled poverty, one person at a timeMarch 12, 2019

MIT senior and Rhodes scholar Sarah Tress aims to combine her mechanical engineering background and MPhil in development studies that she is pursuing at Oxford University to help gain a deeper understanding of how poverty arises and to reduce hardships in developing countries


Engineers develop fast method to convert algae to biocrudeMarch 12, 2019

A team of chemical engineers have developed a new kind of jet mixer for creating biomass from algae that extracts the lipids from the watery plants with much less energy than the older extraction method - a discovery that puts this form of energy closer to becoming a viable, cost-effective alternative fuel


Discovering the next generation of catalystsMarch 12, 2019

The use of solar and wind energy must be doubled over the next 30 years. Catalysts that can ensure the storage of solar and wind energy in fuels and chemicals will play an increasingly important role. Now researchers have developed a method that makes it easier to find better and cheaper catalysts
