Jim Hower, Ph.D., one of the leading coal petrographers in the world and a distinguished fellow at the University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER), has co-authored a new book "Inorganic Geochemistry of Coal."
CAER is building an educational pilot plant to process collected electronic scrap. The plant will be designed, constructed & operated by students & will be financially supported by the sale of marketable metals.
Brewington will study magnetic field design for the Los Alamos National Laboratory neutron electric dipole moment experiment, or LANL-nEDM. Gervais will work with both the Nab Experiment and nEDM collaboration at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee.
“This project will allow us to significantly reduce the complexity and cost of CO2 capture and biofixation from all sources, whether it is from utility companies, cement manufacturing, or chemical plants."
The University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER) has received a $2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy to improve efficiency and reliability at existing and future coal-fired power plants.
