CSU engineers and infectious disease researchers are developing a low-cost sprayable disinfectant that kills SARS-CoV-2 – the virus that causes COVID-19.
CSU scientists in four colleges are members of a national academic partnership to advance innovative approaches that promote human health in homes.
Kurt Barth, associate director of CSU’s Next Generation Photovoltaic Center, received $1.3 million (the Colorado Renewable Energy Collaboratory is contributing significant cost share) for a project titled “Advanced Module Architecture for Reduced Costs, High Durability and Significantly Improved Manufacturability.” Barth’s project will investigate new materials and methods for enhanced durability and reliability of thin-film photovoltaic…Read more
Dr. Daniel Olsen and his lab are known for their top-notch work in investigating and minimizing fuel consumption and emissions by reconfiguring engine systems. Their latest project, funded by Siemens, accomplished just that. Marine vessels are huge consumers of fossils fuels and are inherently inefficient, both in terms of quantities of fuel burned and resulting…Read more
To say Assistant Professor Dr. Jason Quinn has been busy since he joined our Department last fall, would be an understatement. The Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture have each recognized and funded Dr. Quinn’s unique expertise in sustainability, and rightfully so. His knowledge in the…Read more
ME undergraduate student, Liam Lewane, recently shared his latest project at a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Research campaign, addressing environmental air quality. Lewane is a student in Dr. Shantanu Jathar’s Laboratory for Air Quality Research, and recently participated in the NOAA Fire Influence on Regional and Global Environments Experiment in Missoula, Mont. “Liam is an…Read more
Last year, we covered a story about Professor John Volckens receiving a $2.8 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to study the health effects of inhaling emissions from cookstoves that use biomass combustion. Additionally, the U.S Environmental Protection Agency – Science to Achieve Results, recognized his work in the area with a $1.5…Read more
