Twelve ChemEs from the UVa AIChE Student Chapter were able to attend the 2013 AIChE Regional Conference! The weekend conference was held from April 5th-7th at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. The UVa ChemE Car team placed 8th with their aluminum-air and fuel cell powered car, El Toro Loco. El Toro Loco travelled 10 out of the required 20 meters with a payload of 200 mL of water. And a congratulations to 3rd-year Chemical Engineer, Mikel Dermer, for receiving 3rd place in the student poster competition with his poster, Li4Ti5O12 coatings for improved stability of lithium-ion battery anodes!
