Saint Lucifer Jalapeno Spice

Drexel’s Food Lab Gets Spicy with New Collaboration

 

St. Lucifer Foods Co. LLC. headed by two Philadelphia-based culinary entrepreneurs, created their company’s first spice blend with a broad goal to make anything it seasoned, taste better. Creators Ted Ebert and Tom Hewell aimed to portray ‘The Glory of Hot’ – and their masterful blend of garlic, salt, vinegar and fiery habanero peppers, achieved just that. But, as a single spice blend, getting adequate space on the grocery shelves became a problem. To build out their spice family, they turned to students in The Drexel Food Lab and Drexel University’s Center for Hospitality and Sport Management to turn up the imagination, testing and creation process of their second spice blend.

Could Low-Flow Create High Risk? EPA Taps Drexel to Study Water Quality Impact of Conservation Practices

As public awareness of the need for water conservation, and new water-saving technology, have become increasingly effective at stemming excess water use, new questions are surfacing about how our plumbing, which was built to handle a regular flow of water, might now be a risk factor for bacterial and chemical contamination. In hopes of preventing future public health crises related to the systems that carry and treat our water, the Environmental Protection Agency is tasking a team of researchers, led by Drexel University, with a $2 million project to bring together existing and new experimental data on building plumbing—the stretch of pipes that takes water from main to tap—into a risk assessment tool that can guide new water use and safety regulations.

People Aren't The Only Beneficiaries of Power Plant Carbon Standards

When the Environmental Protection Agency finalized the Clean Power Plan in 2015 it exercised its authority to regulate carbon dioxide emissions to protect public welfare. The Plan, now the focus of escalating debate, also put the nation on course to meet its goals under the Paris Climate Agreement. Given that other pollutants are emitted from power plants—along with carbon dioxide—research has shown that carbon emission standards for the power sector benefit human health. New research released today shows that they would also benefit crops and trees.

Urban Climate Change Research Hub Opens at Drexel

In the battle to adapt to and mitigate climate change caused by humans, most environmental engineers and climate scientists agree that cities are the front line. Due to the sheer density of their population, and the quantity of resources they consume, cities have the potential to most quickly and significantly affect—and be affected by—climate risks. They also have the ability to integrate climate resiliency into their plans for the future, according to environmental engineering professor Franco Montalto, PhD, who will direct a network of North American climate change researchers concerting their efforts via a new hub at Drexel University.
