Creating an alternate energy source

Two UT Arlington environmental engineers are adapting a sensor system they have developed to boost methane production in landfills to create an alternative energy source in Ghana, according to Sahadat Hossain and Melanie Sattler, both associate professors of civil engineering, have won a $100,000 grant through the Environmental Protection Agency's Global Methane Initiative. The UT Arlington team also recently was awarded a $300,000 contract with the Dallas-based CP&Y engineering firm to help boost methane production in the Corpus Christi landfill system.

Teaming for technology

Sellmark Corp. of Mansfield is partnering with the University of Texas at Arlington Research Institute (UTARI) with the goal of creating new technology for outdoor lifestyle products for consumers, according to the Fort Worth Business Press. The collaboration will allow students and leading faculty researchers to perform Sellmark-funded research to create and improve existing products, as well as commercialize new technologies.

A good option

UT Arlington and several other institutions give North Texas plenty of educational options available for those that want to retool their skills or start a new career, according to a commentary on CBS DFW, the website for KRLD/1080AM and KTVT/CBS 11. The piece also said that with the lure of tax breaks, warm climate and plenty of land to build new facilities, many companies have relocated to North Texas.
