ECEC is a world leader in PEFC cold start research. Efforts in the past 4 years encompass:
As PEFC cold start research just began to emerge in the open literature, many research groups, both inside and outside Penn State, are expected to follow in this important field of PEFC research. We encourage you to contact Dr. Wang if you would like to know more details of our cold start research: past and present efforts.
