ORANGEBURG — S.C. State Transit Center to house energy research
The Clyburn Transit Center at South Carolina State University also will house the university’s waste energy and biomass energy research work.
S.C. State’s board of trustees was told Thursday that equipment already has been moved into the center. The troubled $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 energy.
The center also has space for automotive research and education. It includes underground fuel tanks and four automotive bays for research maintaining vehicles.
