Researchers from Iowa State University are working with a number of other firms to explore the applications and uses of bioadvantaged polymers. The research initiative comes with the shift of previously using petroleum-based polymers to using biopolymers. These biopolymers are able to be partially produced with renewable resources. The team at Iowa State is working … Continue reading New Iowa State biopolymer processing facility to help research initiative
A team of engineers from Iowa State brought home multiple awards in the International ¼ Scale Tractor Student Design Competition that took place in Peoria, Illinois earlier this month. The ABE Cyclone Power Pullers took home first place awards for Best Appearance, Manufacturability, Innovation, Written Design Report and the Maneuverability categories. The team also won a $500 prize for taking fifth in the overall competition.
Iowa State University College of Engineering researchers have recently demonstrated modification of a two-dimensional metal carbide, opening new doors for water-gas shift reactions. The research was recently published in Nature Catalysis.
