West Virginia University will help promote emerging concepts, technologies and use of alternative energy sources to supply heat, power and new feedstocks for energy-intensive industries, thanks to U.S. Department of Energy funding aimed at helping small- and medium-sized manufacturers reduce carbon emissions and energy costs.
As alternative energy sources have become necessary to decrease global carbon emissions
and meet growing energy demands, researchers at
West Virginia University had ideas that came bubbling to the top—literally.
