|SUNRISE researchers receive FAA grant|
PI Wayne Seames and co-PI Darrin Muggli of chemical engineering will lead a team of researchers from the Sustainable Energy Research and Supporting Education (SUNRISE) initiative in studying the feasibility of producing organic liquids that can serve as octane enhancers for low lead high octane aviation gasoline. Graduate students in the chemical engineering and chemistry departments will evaluate the technical feasibility of producing these new products from soybean and canola oil. This 18-month, $380,952 grant was awarded through the Center for General Aviation Research. Other SUNRISE faculty participants include Alena Kubatova and Evguenii Kozliak of chemistry, plus Michael Mann and Mo Sadrameli of chemical engineering.
