Noah Sandoval’s experiences teaching environmental science led him to pursue a graduate degree in Advanced Energy Systems at Mines.
“We’re targeting the highest electric efficiency ever for something that’s powered by a fossil fuel – the world’s first 70 percent efficient natural-gas fueled power generation system,” said Robert Braun, professor of mechanical engineering. “It’s natural gas, but it’s clean and there are very few emissions other than carbon dioxide.”
Professor Sebnem Duzgun's work could help researchers identify the presence of geothermal resources based on surface and subsurface characteristics.
The global low-carbon revolution could be at risk unless new international agreements and governance mechanisms are put in place to ensure a sustainable supply of rare minerals and metals, a new
"Cost is the main barrier to the widespread adoption of polymer electrolyte fuel cells,” Assistant Professor Svitlana Pylypenko said.
The PECASE is the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government to scientists and engineers who are early in their careers as researchers and show leadership promise in fields of science and
The scaled-down prototype soon to begin operational testing at the National Wind Technology Center in Boulder, though, takes its inspiration from a decidedly un-Colorado source. The Segmented
Morgan Bazilian, director of the Payne Institute of Public Policy at Colorado School of Mines, was the co-author of a recent commentary piece in the journal Nature exploring the geopolitics of the
They won’t start final construction in Morocco until August, but the Mines Solar Decathlon team isn’t waiting to get building. The eco-friendly model home’s wet wall – the interior wall that contains
A pair of Colorado School of Mines professors has been awarded $300,000 by the National Science Foundation to design a new kind of membrane that uses gas hydrates to purify natural gas. Moises Carreon
