Cunningham and Hageboeck named 2017 WVU Homecoming queen, king

A week of Homecoming activities at West Virginia University culminated today (Oct. 14) with the crowning of Morgan Cunningham and Charlie Hageboeck as the 2017 king and queen. The announcement was made during the half-time ceremony at Saturday’s Homecoming football game against Texas Tech.

New WVU study provides roadmap to lower methane emissions for future heavy-duty natural gas vehicle fleet

A new study published today (August 23) in the Journal of Air and Waste Management Association builds upon recent heavy-duty natural gas vehicle methane emission measurements to model methane emissions from a future, much larger vehicle fleet. This study, conducted by researchers at West Virginia University’s Center for Alternative Fuels, Engines, and Emissions, comes as the price of natural gas has decreased, leading to interest in natural gas as a cleaner replacement for diesel in heavy-duty vehicles.

WVU emissions researchers help address automotive industry and regulatory challenges on clean-diesel issues

Researchers at West Virginia University have long studied emissions from diesel vehicles to provide independent data about emissions performance both in the laboratory and on the road, as well as provide technology demonstration, other research and design support. The most recent study from WVU’s Center for Alternative Fuels, Engines and Emissions measured oxides of nitrogen emissions, or NOx, from five Fiat Chrysler vehicles in real-world and laboratory tests.
