Oil production often uses CO2 to help recover the oil in a reservoir. A Missouri S&T researcher is using thermostable particle gels to help recover oil and store CO2.

Bai partners with DOE on CO2 storage, oil recovery

A Missouri University of Science and Technology researcher is working on a method to increase oil production and store carbon dioxide into oil formations — at the same time.

Dr. Baojun Bai, the Lester Birbeck Endowed professor of geosciences and geological and petroleum engineering at Missouri S&T, has received a U.S. Department of Energy grant to make the process of drawing oil from underground and storing CO2 more efficient using thermostable particle gels, which can resist the high temperature of formations.

The Missouri S&T Solar Village is an example of a smart grid. Researchers are working on ways to keep such power systems secure.

Missouri S&T team connects the dots in power supply systems

A Missouri University of Science and Technology researcher is working to produce algorithms for cyber-physical systems (CPS) to help bridge the gap between computational and physical systems in an increasingly interconnected world.

A CPS is a system of collaborating computers that control physical entities, such as power systems. The National Science Foundation awarded a team led by Dr. Jonathan Kimball, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at Missouri S&T, $333,298 for the project. Also working on the project are Dr. Bruce McMillan, associate dean for research and outreach in the College of Engineering and Computing and a professor of computer science at Missouri S&T; and Dr. Mo-Yuen Chow, professor of electrical and computer engineering at North Carolina State University.
