Dylan Ratigan, host of The Dylan Ratigan Show, and a television crew taped a segment on the University of Delaware's Affordable Composites from Renewable Sources (ACRES) program. Chemical engineering doctoral student Erman Senoz detailed in an interview how the research group uses chicken feathers to store hydrogen for use in cars, buses and other forms of transport.

The segment is set to air Thursday as part of the show's “Steel on Wheelsfeature, which Ratigan labels as a road trip tackling the nation's most important issues. He includes energy in that list.

The ACRES program, headed by Richard Wool, professor of chemical engineering, designs and develops bio-based materials for use in various renewable energy projects, from fuel cells to energy efficient housing.

While in Newark, the MSNBC crew taped at the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources' chicken houses, where Allen Laboratory manager Bob Alphin gave them a tour. They also viewed one of UD's hydrogen buses, the product of work conducted by UD's Center for Fuel Cell Research.
