Two teams of undergraduate and graduate students from the Chemical Engineering Department competed in Vertech City: Imagine Your City Greener – an international student project competition – held at Victoriaville, Quebec, Canada on November 4-7, 2014. One of the teams called Waste-To-Watts, represented by Dhan Lord Fortela, Ashley Mikolajczyk, and Casie Gaskin, won third place.
