Jyamfi Wins Best Research Poster

Congratulations to Masters student Kwaku Jyamfi who was awarded first place at the Energy Week research poster competition at Duke University.

"I presented a solution to the problem of energy poverty in developing nations," explains Jyamfi. "With about one billion people without access to cheap and reliable electricity, Farm to Flame Energy addresses this by utilizing the waste chains of these underserved areas to generate electricity. We do it differently than others, with a patented combustion process that sets us part in emissions and energy efficiency."

Jyamfi, who is advised by CEE Department Head and Hamerschlag University Professor Dave Dzombak, completed his undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering at Syracuse University
