African-Americans and Hispanics breathe in far more deadly air pollution than they are responsible for making, a new study said. This study was co-authored by Jason Hill who is a Department of BBE Associate Professor and who helps oversee the Sustainable System Management Major within the department.
Algae has the potential to become a sustainable raw material, but will be impractical until researchers can find a way to cut costs, according to a recent University of Minnesota analysis.
An ice dam typically forms along a roof’s edge or valley, underneath a thick blanket of snow. Poor insulation or venting in an attic space can cause the home’s interior heat to escape, melting the snow on the roof. That water then runs down the roof and freezes, forming a dam that grows as the melt-and-freeze cycle continues. Water pooling behind that dam can then leak into the house.
