The Stanford Natural Gas Initiative is a collaboration of more than 40 research groups at Stanford University drawn from engineering, science, policy, geopolitical, and business disciplines that works with a consortium of industry partners and other external stakeholders to generate the knowledge needed to use natural gas to its greatest social, economic, and environmental benefit. 

We welcome new participants in our research and new members to our consortium any time. Please explore our website for more information.

Marketplace Tech spoke with Evan Sherwin, a postdoctoral researcher in energy and resources engineering at Stanford University, about the kinds of sustainable jet fuels out there.

Methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, can be captured and transformed into protein-rich feed for farmed fish – an increasingly important food sector. A new analysis shows how to make the approach more cost-effective than current fish feeds.

We hope that our summer newsletter finds you all well. We are excited to announce that Stanford will be welcoming students back to campus this fall, and we hope to be hosting in-person events soon. Throughout the campus lockdown, NGI has remained dedicated to focusing on our mission of conducting fundamental research and promoting an inclusive space for scientific debate and information sharing.
