    On The Road Again...This Time, It's For Air Quality Testing

    June 24, 2014

    “Have idea, will travel” … while it’s not Drexel’s official slogan (yet) you could be forgiven if you think so. Over the last few years it seems as though research-on-wheels has become one of the university’s specialties. Add air quality to a list of mobile labs that already includes arts education and autism testing. Whether it’s in the spirit of Drexel’s community outreach mission or just an excuse for a creative paint job, students and faculty are packing their projects into a van and taking their brainpower to the people.

    Building a Better Battery With Tanks of Slurry

    June 23, 2014

    The biggest drawback preventing widespread use of renewable energy isn’t cloudy, wind-free days. It’s actually the relative stubbornness of the batteries used to store the energy generated by the solar panels and windmills. They fill up too quickly, but don’t discharge the energy quickly enough. They don’t last very long and are expensive to replace. And once they’ve run their course, it’s rather tricky to dispose of them safely. Drexel engineers have been working on a more accommodating energy storage system for the last few years – and now we have a first look at a prototype of the device called the “electrochemical flow capacitor.”
