In a joint project with RTI International, the State of Minnesota, and several Minnesota utilities, U of MN researchers will soon be taking on a new project which aims to re-imagine next-generation processes for producing and using low-carbon energy carriers like ammonia.
The University of Minnesota’s West Central Research and Outreach Center is the first U of MN entity to achieve certification through the Minnesota Agricultural Water Quality Certification Program (MAWQCP). Administered through the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, this voluntary program allows farmers and landowners to demonstrate new practices which can positively impact water quality and conservation efforts that help protect our environment.
