ENST Student Helps Create Hudrogen Fuel for Automobiles
Yaella Landau, an environmental science and technology major, worked as a summer research intern at the Arava Institute in Israel, located on Kibbutz Ketura.
The Arava Institute is a regional gathering place for Israelis, Palestinians, and people of other nationalities to study common environmental problems. Landau’s research project involved creating hydrogen fuel for automobiles using Boron’s hydrolysis reaction. “I have learned a great deal about hydrogen cars and specifically the metal hydrolysis process,” says Landau. In conjunction with her research, Landau also worked as assistant to Dr. Tareq Abu-Hamed, director of the Arava Institute.
