Empowered by his position as a sustainability intern for the Faculty Student Association (FSA), Edward Gallagher ’18 has worked to develop a more efficient, sustainable method to compost food waste at campus dining locations. While FSA currently composts “pre-consumer” food leftovers that no one has bought or taken, resulting in more than 6,000 lbs. of food waste converted into usable compost this semester, a program to compost leftovers that students couldn’t finish was in need of development — and Gallagher was happy to help. In his research, Gallagher came across a composting process called Bokashi, a Japanese term for “fermented…

A team of researchers from the Department of Mechanical Engineering in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (CEAS) are developing hybrid engines unlike others used in industry today.
