University of Minnesota engineering researchers leading a team with international members have made a major breakthrough in developing a catalyst used during chemical reactions in the production of gasoline, plastics, biofuels, pharmaceuticals, and other chemicals. The discovery could lead to major efficiencies and cost-savings in these multibillion-dollar industries. This research improves efficiencies by giving molecules […]

George Huber, the Armstrong Associate Professor at University of Massachusetts at Amherst, likely the most prolific chemical engineering researcher today has published a paper in Science outlining a new pyrolysis oil process that yields chemical feedstock and fuel type products. The Huber team members are Tushar Vispute, Aimaro Sanno, Huiyan Zhang at UMass and Rui […]
