IMSA Energy Center Requests

December 21st, 2009 · No Comments · Uncategorized

FromĀ [Allalum-l] –

Hello IMSA Alumni, This year IMSA students working in the Energy Center have finished many details on the mobile Energy House and have shown it to hundreds of students and parents from the Aurora area. Other students are currently working on a large vertical shaft wind turbine/solar panel installation to power lights and low voltage electronics in the main building.

The third group is working on a continuous batch bio-diesel production unit. They are constructing it from a 2.5 gallon hot water heater. Last year the bio-diesel group received their stock oil from Sodexo (IMSA’s food service provider). This year Sodexo is selling their used cooking oil to a company off campus. What we were hoping is that over the holiday season some of you may be deep frying your turkeys. If you do not know what to do with the left over oil please securely bottle it and bring it to IMSA for students to use for their project.

The last request regards expertise you may have (or even passionate interest) in the above mentioned areas. We are using the new Coolhub@IMSA to collaborate with several experts and other interested individuals. Coolhub, although in the “alpha” stage, is very useful for blogging, sharing documents and schematics and video conferencing. If you would like to join one of these projects please send me an email. Have a great holiday season. Branson Lawrence IMSA Science Faculty
