Sustainability Café on March 24 will look at fuel cell research on campus


Contributed by Marian Brown

The Sustainability Café on Monday, March 17th will feature Dr. Janet Hunting presenting “Hydrogen Fuel Cell Research at IC.” The Café will be held in Center for Natural Sciences Room 112 at 4:00PM, in conjunction with the Environmental Seminar. The Spring 2014 Sustainability Café/Environmental Seminar series is focused on the concept of Campus Sustainability: Hiding in Plain Sight. 

Dr. Janet Hunting is associate professor of Chemistry with a research specialty in solid state chemistry. Her primary interest is the synthesis and characterization of new inorganic materials which may find use in alternative energy or energy-saving applications. Durable materials are essential to the widespread introduction of fuel cell technology. Dr. Hunting’s lab is currently focusing on creating stable, electrically conductive materials that can be useful for applications such as cathode supports in fuel cells.

"Teachable edibles” – local, organic and/or seasonal snacks – for the Spring 2014 Sustainability Café series are being sponsored by Ithaca College Dining Services whose motto is “Sustainability – Healthy – Fresh.” Please bring your reusable mug and fill up at the nearest drinking fountain or provide your own beverage of choice.

This event is free and open to the public.
