The University of New Hampshire (UNH) in Durham, NH, has launched a landfill gas project that pipes enriched and purified gas from a landfill in Rochester to the Durham campus. The renewable, carbon-neutral landfill gas from Waste Management's Turnkey Recycling and Environmental Enterprise facility in Rochester will replace commercial natural gas as the primary fuel for UNH's cogeneration plant. The landfill gas will provide 80 to 85 percent of the university's energy, making UNH the first university in the national to use landfill gas as it primary energy source.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
