NSAC Builds a TREEhouse


The normal response of a person to a rundown house with no occupants is to tear it down. NSAC’s researchers don’t respond normally. Instead of seeing a decrepit building that used to be someone’s home, the NSAC Engineering team, lead by Dr. Kenny Corscadden, decided to
turn a house on campus into what has been dubbed, “TREEhouse”.

Ridgetown Campus Gets $2.6 Million for biofuel research and development (April 12, 2010 - Campus Bulletin)

The University of Guelph's Ridgetown Campus has received more than $2.6 million from the federal government for biofuel research and development. The money will be used to construct an anaerobic digester using manure to generate methane, and a demonstration laboratory. The anaerobic digester will be one of only a few such renewable energy source facilities in Ontario. The technology processes the waste to produce electricity, waste heat and fertilizer, among other things. The money comes from the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario through the Community Adjustment Fund.

Suresh Neethirajan, a recent PhD graduate and a postdoctoral fellow from the Department of Biosystems Engineering has been awarded multiple international awards for his academic and research excellence. Suresh received the prestigious Obei-Tanki Fellowship from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science to work as a visiting researcher at the National Food Research Institute, Tsukuba. The Obei-Tanki Fellowship is only awarded once per researcher in their lifetime. Suresh is also a recipient of Humboldt Fellowship from Alexander Von Humboldt Foundation, Germany and the 2010 NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship from Canada to work at the Max Planck Institute, Germany and at The Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Tennessee respectively.
