Features 10th National Chem-E-Car Competition - College Teams Create

Alternative Fuels to Power Cars

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), the nation's leading association for chemical engineers, is holding its Centennial Annual Meeting in Philadelphia from Nov. 16-21.

From around the world, 6,000 corporate and academic leaders, engineers, and students are expected. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of AIChE's founding in Philadelphia, the meeting will focus on chemical engineering innovations over the past century, but even more, on the future of technologies in areas like renewable energy, sustainability, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology that are key to our economy and health.

A highlight of the event will be the 10th annual Chem-E-Car competition at 1 p.m. on Nov. 16 at Exhibit Hall B, Pennsylvania Convention Center, 1101 Arch Street, Philadelphia, in which university teams from around the country will race small cars powered by alternative fuels -- chemical reactions -- such as beef liver and hydrogen peroxide, Mentos(R) and Coca Cola(R), and homemade fuel cells. As the world focuses on finding new ways to power automobiles, Chem-E-Car features some of the brightest scientists of tomorrow using their imaginations to find new fuels.
