Keeping Roads in Good Shape Reduces Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Delaying pavement maintenance boosts emissions and costs, according to a Rutgers-led study. Rutgers civil and environmental engineering researchers found that extending the life of pavement through preventive maintenance can reduce greenhouse gases, transportation agencies can cut spending, and drivers can save on fuel consumption, tire wear, vehicle repair, and maintenance costs because of smoother surfaces.

DSC_0479.jpg The Gift of Clean Water
Located a half an hour from the equator in southwestern Kenya, the remote village of Kolunje lacked a safe and sustainable source of drinking water. This changed when a team from the Rutgers chapter of Engineers Without Borders succeeded in drilling a borehole and creating a well for the 7,200 residents here. "The (10-year) project was almost completely given up on," says Kenya Project co-leader Evan Lutz. "When water was struck during this summer's trip, many members of our team, including myself, cried." Read more>>

RU Gloves.jpg An Energy-Efficient Way to Stay Warm: Sew High-Tech Heating Patches into Your Clothes
What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes — while significantly reducing your electric bill and carbon footprint? Mechanical Engineering professor Rajiv Malhotra, along with academic and industry partners, have found a cost-effective way to make thin, durable heating patches by using intense pulses of light to fuse tiny silver wires with polyester.
