Chemical Engineering Find Cheap Fuel Saver with Citronella Oil

The high demand for fossil fuel has made the world petroleum reserves run out. On the other hand, there are essential oils that are the product of Indonesia’s natural wealth. One of them is citronella oil, which is predicted to have characteristics close to the characteristics of fuel oil. Combining these two facts, three students […]

Chemical Engineering Students Create Future High Storage Capacity Batteries

Electric vehicles have received more attention in recent years for their potential to reduce emissions, replace fossil fuel consumption, diversify fuel sources, and integrate renewable energy into power systems. In order to support this technology, of course lithium-ion batteries will become very important in the future. Unfortunately the availability of these lithium-ion batteries is very […]

Engineering Students Create Automatic Sprinkler System with Spider Sensor

Vast technological advances coupled with monotonous routines can trigger boredom that leads to stress. To rest oneself from this burnout, some people choose to switch to gardening or farming. Based on a study published in the Journal of Health Psychology, it is explained that farming is more effective in reducing stress than reading books. Another […]

Chemical Engineering UB Develops Redox Flow Battery Components from Banana Peels

By 2020, renewable energy is predicted to supply 12% of electricity needs in the USA and 20% in Europe. This encourages the advancement of large-scale and stable storage of electrical energy technology, that is battery. Batteries that are commonly used as energy storage devices for renewable energy power plants are lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries. This […]

UB Students Turn Factory Waste into Valuable Clean Energy

Sugar factory is an industry that produces hot liquid waste. This hot liquid waste is a waste from condenser activity used in the evaporation and cooking process. Part of the condenser wastewater is discharged directly into the environment without undergoing treatment due to the limited capacity of the temperature reducing unit. The condenser wastewater content […]

MOOSPIN, Automatic Milking Device & Sterilizer Using Plasma

The dairy farming in Indonesia is still classified as conventional. This can make milk easily contaminated with the environment. Determined to increase the production and quality of the milk, three Universitas Brawijaya (UB) students designed an innovative automatic milking device and sterilizer using the non-thermal plasma sterilization method. This idea was initiated by Electrical Engineering […]
