WVU engineers receive $3 million DOE award to capture emissions at shale gas production sites

A three-year collaborative project to develop a new low-cost process to convert the natural gas that is commonly flared at industrial sites could benefit a number of industrial sectors including the carbon fiber industry, carbon composite, electronics, electrical arc steel making, polymer additives and many others, all while having a positive effect on the economy and environment.

It’s getting hot in here: WVU engineer improves efficiency of U.S. energy infrastructure

By rethinking the design of thermoelectric materials, which have the ability to convert heat to electricity, Xueyan Song, a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at West Virginia University, is working to develop a method to recover the wasted heat energy from the air, resulting in improved sustainability and efficiency of the energy infrastructure in the U.S.

WVU awarded $300K for state redevelopment projects

Grafton's historic and industrial districts will be redeveloped by West Virginia University’s Northern West Virginia Brownfields Assistance Center in an effort to preserve local history and revitalize the community. The Center was awarded a $300,000 grant by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to jumpstart redevelopment of former industrial sites in West Virginia.

Donation of industry-leading software gives WVU students an edge

Access to industry-leading software – donated for more than a decade by Schlumberger, a worldwide provider of technology for reservoir characterization, drilling, production and processing within the oil and gas industry – gives students at West Virginia University’s Benjamin M. Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources and Eberly College of Arts and Sciences an edge in coursework, research and the job market.

A global mindset: new academic program at WVU will encourage cross-cultural collaboration

In a major step toward preparing students to succeed in the global market, the Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources and the School of Chemical Engineering and Technology at the China University of Mining and Technology are teaming up to create a 3+1+1 academic program that will allow eligible students from CUMT to study at West Virginia University.
