Going Carbon Neutral
ASU researchers are contributing to efforts to achieve the decarbonization of our power sources as part of the transformation to renewable energy and away from fossil fuels that lead to environmental problems. Significant work toward this goal is being done by Fulton Schools Assistant Research Professor Zhengshan Yu (pictured), Professor Bruce Rittmann and Assistant Research Professor Arthur Ono. Yu’s team has developed a more efficient solar energy panel. Rittmann and colleagues he directs at ASU’s Swette Center for Environmental Biotechnology are doing research at a wastewater treatment plant to produce a carbon-neutral biofuel. Ono is working on potentially less expensive and more energy efficient solar power technology.
