SC State Transit Center housing energy research

ORANGEBURG, S.C. — The Clyburn Transit Center at South Carolina State University will also house the university’s waste energy and biomass energy research work.

The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg reports the university board of trustees was told Thursday that equipment has already been moved into the center. The $5 million center was completed about a year ago after 13 years of delays.

The university has hired Kenneth Lewis, the former dean of the university’s College of Science, Mathematics, Engineering and Technology, to conduct research in the center. Lewis is a researcher in development of alternative forms of energy.

The center also has space for automotive research and education. It includes underground fuel tanks and four automotive bays for research maintaining vehicles.
