Methane Levels Have Increased in Marcellus Shale Region Despite a Dip in Well Installation

February 13, 2017

“Methane is increasing globally, but the rate of increase for this region is much more rapid than global increases,” said Peter DeCarlo, PhD, an assistant professor who studies atmospheric chemistry in Drexel’s College of Engineering and College of Arts and Sciences, who led the study. “The rapid increase in methane is likely due to the increased production of natural gas from the region which has increased significantly over the 2012 to 2015 period. With the increased background levels of methane, the relative climate benefit of natural gas over coal for power production is reduced.”

Material Witnesses - Researchers Around the World are Delving into Drexel's 2D MXENE

February 10, 2017

It’s been just over five years since researchers in Drexel’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering reported on a new, two-dimensional material composed of titanium and carbon atoms. Their creation, dubbed MXene, which is, cleverly, both chemical shorthand for the material and a homonym of Maxine, is now the focus of research at dozens of partner institutions from countries spanning every continent but Antarctica. And a feature story, on the cover of the latest edition of Nature Reviews Materials, suggests that even more should take up the pursuit.

Q+A: What’s With The Welds Wrecking Havoc on SEPTA?

February 09, 2017

Richard Knight, PhD, a teaching professor and associate head of Drexel’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering in the College of Engineering, has an extensive background in thermal plasma processes and materials diagnostics. He was able to shed some light on the process of welding, how defects can occur and the precautions taken to identify and prevent them.
