UB student research has a real-world impact

Two UB students are using knowledge acquired in their coursework to achieve success with greener technology. A recipient of a Morris K. Udall Scholarship, Kelly Miller is perfecting a low cost sand filter that makes cleaner drinking water for third world countries. Josh Hancock launched a program that converts cooking grease to bio-diesel fuel for campus vehicles, saving UB more than $10,000 annually. And media study student Mathew Jackson directed and filmed a video that captures what Miller and Hancock are up to – have a look.
