TekNoXpo

TekNoXpo is more than a trip to campus.  It’s an opportunity to experience the job of a biofuels researcher.

The Center participates in MSU Northern’s Diesel Track of TekNoXpo.  With us, students are take on a lab tour that shows them everything from start to finish, seed pressing all the way to emissions testing.  But it’s way more than a tour.  Students are also given the opportunity to be apart of the biodiesel certification process.  They will learn how to use such instruments as our Attenuated Total Reflection-Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer, Irox Diesel Analyzer, and Sulfur Analyzer.  Even more, they’ll learn about what these tests mean.
