University of Kentucky Receives $14 Million NSF Grant to Construct World-Class Cultural Heritage Lab

Using NSF funding, Brent Seales has gathered a team of experts from UK's College of Engineering and the College of Arts and Sciences to build EduceLab — UK’s vision for next-generation heritage science. The collaborative facility will focus on developing innovative artificial intelligence solutions for the unique challenges presented by cultural heritage objects.

CAER will be developing an intensified, cost-effective and scalable process using aqueous potassium hydroxide (KOH) as capture solvent for direct air capture.

CAER Project Seeks to Capture Carbon Directly From the Atmosphere

In addition to developing direct air capture technology, this collaborative research team will also look at the engineering design systems for utilization and storage of carbon dioxide from air.
