2005 Task 8
Home Up

 

 

This team proposed a method to control dust particulates made airborne by human activity,  Their process involved production of glycerin, to spray onto and control the dust, and biodiesel from waste vegetable oil obtained from such places as fast food restaurants.  This approach had the benefits of obtaining the products from a waste material, and one of the products could be used a fuel in the vehicles used to apply the glycerin.  The innovativeness of this approach resulted in this team winning an award that recognized solutions that looked "outside the box."
