Worth noting: Aggies at the landill of the future and summer research by apprentice Aggies

Two news items worth noting from the School of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences:

— Sunday’s News and Record reported on the involvement of A&T researchers at the Catawba County Regional EcoComplex and Resource Recovery Facility, which is developing a system to recover all useable products and by-products  from the local landfill (near Hickory).  Professor Abolghasem Shahbazi and grad student Quentin Brown were quoted in the article, available here.  More about the EcoComplex is available at its website.

— High school students in the School of Ag’s Research Apprenticeship Program did some serious research this summer.  Summaries of their projects are available on the program’s Facebook page.  If you want a reason to feel good about the next generation of researchers, give it a look.
