Student's research wins fellowship
Donovan Pena's research into reducing pollutants from burning coal at the University of Cincinnati has won the school's 2001 distinguished dissertation fellowship for physical science and engineering.
Mr. Pena, a graduate student, uses selective catalytic reduction to reduce the nitrogen oxides that contribute to smog. Unlike many other processes, his works at temperatures as low as 80 degrees Celsius.
