Dr. Seay, recently lead seven UK Paducah chemical and mechanical engineering research students in a design project to develop low-cost, environmentally friendly technologies to produce biodiesel for rural villagers in Cameroon, Africa. Dr. Seay and the students worked with the African Center for Renewable Energy and Sustainable Technology (ACREST) to design the process using resources and materials readily available in Cameroon. The 10-day trip to Bangang, Cameroon to work with the local villagers in implementing and refining the design was the culmination of this year-long project.
