About this Grantee

High school and college students in science classes collaborate with the Oregon Department of Energy to develop a plan to use fuel cell technology to convert excess landfill gas to electrical energy. Students analyze the levels of excess gas that a local landfill is currently producing. Based on their research, students investigate whether high temperature fuel cells are suitable for converting the excess gas to electricity. Students present their findings and proposed plan to a nonprofit power cooperative and community members.
