The EnergyMakers Show, an online broadcast sponsored by Comcast Business, has spent time with Cullen College faculty in the past, and now they've honed in on Michael Harold, chair and M.D. Anderson professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering.

In Episode 136, Harold discusses the research efforts taking place at the Texas Center for Clean Engines, Emissions and Fuels, located at the University of Houston's Energy Research Park (ERP). Specifically, Harold explains his research with catalytic convertors, which take toxic gasses produced during fuel burns and converts them to benign gasses that are not harmful to the environment.
