Location: Whittaker Hall, room 100. Whittaker Hall is located in the Engineering complex on the lower part of campus, near the parking lot.
Chancellor’s Fellowship Lecture “NASA’s GreenLab Research Facility: A Potential Global Solution for Water, Food/Feed, Fuel and Energy.”
Bilal Mark McDowell Bomani is the kind of research scientist whose low profile belies the significance of his work at NASA’s Glenn Research Center,where his team is creating biofuels that are sustainable, renewable and alternative. He uses the term “extreme green” to describe the objective: to develop the next generation of aviation fuels that do not use any of the Earth’s most precious resources – fresh water and arable land — but do use some of the safest and most plentiful products found in nature.
