NPR's “The World” podcast interviewed Monica Lupion, assistant professor of teaching in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, for a story about Climeworks, one of the first and best-known companies to direct air capture — or pull carbon dioxide directly out of ambient air for storage or use, which can help lower emissions in the atmosphere. 

6/22/20 published an article on UB and Georgia State University research that resulted in the development of the RehabPhone, a smartphone software tool that allows for home-based rehab using 3D-printed tools. The research included investigators from the UB School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the UB School of Public Health and Health Professions.


Control Engineering reports that researchers from North Carolina State University and UB have developed a technology called “Artificial Chemist,” which incorporates artificial intelligence (AI) and an automated system for performing chemical reactions to accelerate R&D and manufacturing of commercially desirable materials.


Firehouse reports that the National Fire Protection Association will award its Foundation Medal to Negar Elhami Khorasani, assistant professor in the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, and colleagues for their work on a project titled, "Digitized Fuel Load Survey Methodology Using Machine Vision."


Forbes quotes John L. Crassidis, Samuel P. Capen Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, in a story on a Russian startup that's spraying space junk with polymeric foam that will then sink safely and burn up in Earth’s atmosphere.


The financial vitality of any type of organization hinges on two metrics: profit and cash flow. While there is no magic bullet to assure positive performance measures for either, there is a powerful philosophy that has potential to make an enormous impact. The Lean business methodology, as described in a LinkedIn article by UB Center for Industrial Effectiveness (TCIE) Executive Director Timothy Leyh, trims out time and efforts spent on the unnecessary. The best chance of making Lean stick is to start by grasping five simple yet essential principles.


UB TCIE provided an 8-hour preventive maintenance training to employees at Panasonic Solar North America. John R. Morgan, general manager, says, "I think we have made a better return with this investment than any other to date. I highly recommend the folks at TCIE to other industrial leaders. They should leverage this fine local resource." 


The advancement surpasses silicon and other mature technologies, and could help improve distances that electric cars, locomotives and airplanes can travel.
