An interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University has launched a five-year project to make the production of advanced biofuels more efficient and affordable.
The NSF CREST Bioenergy Center’s goal is to make biomass a more viable source of renewable energy by developing the basic science and technology that will make energy conversions more efficient and costs more affordable.  The center is conducting fundamental research toward the development of advanced thermochemical biomass conversion technology to produce liquid transportation fuels and hydrogen. The $5 million project is funded by the National Science Foundation’s Centers of Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST) program. 
 
“Biobased industries present tremendous opportunities for agriculture and energy independence, but to be sustainable, they must rely on non-food sources, and therefore, they present major technical and logistical challenges which require coordination between government, private industry and research institutions,” says center director Dr. Abolghasem Shahbazi, an A&T professor of biological engineering in the School of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences.  “We know petroleum is a finite resource. We know it’s going to run out, the only question is when? And we know liquid fuels are necessary for transportation, because of the high energy density they contain. Nothing else comes close. So biofuels are the best alternative for replacing petroleum fuels.”   The center’s research will specifically target the production of high quality synthesis gas from biomass gasification, nanocatalysts for the conversion of syngas to bioethanol, and the production of high purity hydrogen for fuel cell applications.
The center research team includes Dr. Shamsuddin Ilias, Research Professor, Chemical and Bioengineering; Dr. Debasish Kuila, Professor of Chemistry; Dr. Lijun Wang, Associate Professor of Biological Engineering; Dr. Lyubov Kurkalova, Associate Professor of Economics; Dr. Keith Schimmel, Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering and Chair of the Department of Energy and Environmental Systems (EES); Dr. Yevgeniy Rastigeyev, Assistant Professor of Math/EES; Dr. Vinayak Kabadi, Professor of Chemical Engineering; Dr. Jinzhong Lou, Professor of Chemistry; and Dr. Divi Venkateswarlu, Associate Professor of Chemistry.

Undergraduate research studentUndergraduate Research Gets a Boost A&T Media & Photo
A team of A&T faculty members and administrators has
developed an action plan to advance the development of the university’s undergraduate research program. The plan was created at a conference funded by the National Science Foundation, held last month at the University of San Diego. The plan was created at a conference funded by the National Science Foundation, held last month at the University of San Diego.   The institute provided strategies and best practices to institutionalize undergraduate research and connect undergraduate research with other high-impact practices. Each team developed an action plan for their institution under the direction of experienced facilitators who have successfully developed research programs within their departments, institutions, regions, and at the national level.

Let it Rip
The SWAC and SIAC Conferences have led the NCAA in football attendance in the former Division I-AA and Division II for a number of years. Music is an integral part of the black college sports experience where at least half the attendance is attributed to the bands. Good football is on TV free almost daily, nevertheless ,black college football continues to log record breaking attendance at venues known to Let it Rip as personified by a Bethune-Cookman University's (former SIAC member) dance team 14 Caret Gold performance between plays.
