Researchers study impact of contaminants in floodwaters

Missouri University of Science and Technology

Last spring’s historic flooding along the Missouri and Mississippi rivers may have distributed toxic contaminants along wide flood routes. Researchers know little about how these materials may affect public health and safety in rural and urban areas. But a group of geologists and geological engineers from Missouri University of Science and Technology is working to find out.

Researchers urge Midwestern states to recycle solar panels efficiently

Missouri University of Science and Technology

By 2050, up to six million tons of solar panel waste will need recycling. But few states have started processes for handling the waste even as they require more energy produced by renewable sources.

Researchers realize world’s thinnest optical hologram with 2-D material monolayer

Missouri University of Science and Technology

Missouri S&T researchers are demonstrating a new concept to reconstruct holographic images by using a single two-dimensional material monolayer with the thickness of less than one nanometer. Their work could lead to the creation of smart watches with holographic displays, printed security cryptograms on bank notes and credit cards, and new possibilities for data storage.

Researchers build cannon to test seals in coal mines

Missouri University of Science and Technology

Mining and explosives engineering researchers at Missouri University of Science and Technology began testing concrete seals used to close coal mine tunnels this month by loading a cannon with projectiles, shooting them at the seals and testing their impact. The research could help to improve the design of seals and keep miners safe.

Newswise: Researchers to quantify and reduce harmful black carbon emissions from jet fuels in global aviation

Researchers to quantify and reduce harmful black carbon emissions from jet fuels in global aviation

Missouri University of Science and Technology

The number of passengers on airlines almost doubled worldwide from 2007 to 2017 – from 2.2 billion to 4 billion people – according to the World Bank. And the public is increasingly aware of how atmospheric emissions from air travel can negatively impact both human health and climate. Researchers from Missouri University of Science and Technology are helping to establish international standards for jet engine particulate matter emissions that will reduce those impacts. Missouri S&T recently received $1.2 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation to determine emissions characteristics of non-volatile particulate matter (nvPM), or black carbon, from burning conventional and sustainable alternative jet fuels (SAJFs) in jet engines at cruise altitudes.

Analyzing past earthquakes may be key to predicting future activity

Missouri University of Science and Technology

With the recent earthquakes in early July in southern California, it is more important than ever to be able to accurately predict when and where the next one will occur. A researcher at Missouri S&T is working to do just that by studying past seismic waves produced by earthquakes.
