MMUST Acquires Ksh. 12 Million Nitrogen Generating Plant Set to Enhance Research and Training in the School of Natural Sciences!!

The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Solomon Shibairo, formally receives the Nitrogen Generating Plant.

Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology has acquired a Nitrogen Generating Plant in a bid to enhance research and training in the School of Natural Sciences (SONAS). The plant is set to supply liquid Nitrogen to the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) machine, which is housed in the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry. It was brought to the University today, 12th April, 2023, by a team from Scientific Laboratory Supplies (SLS), and officially received by the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Solomon Shibairo.

This is indeed a great move for MMUST as it will not only cut down the cost of purchasing Nitrogen, but also create a source of income for the University. The newly- obtained Plant has the capacity to produce thirty (30) litres of Nitrogen per day. The NMR machine only requires fifteen (15) litres of Nitrogen per day, meaning that the remainder will be distributed to other departments in the School, and the rest to the surrounding community for income generation.

It is worth noting that the NMR machine was donated by the African Development Bank (ADB). It is used to determine the structure of organic molecules which are very important because they are a part of every living thing.

Also present during the handover of the Nitrogen Generating Plant were; members of the University Management Board (UMB), Registrar (Academic Affairs), Registrar (Planning, Research and Innovation), Dean SONAS, Chairperson of Pure and Applied Chemistry Department, Student Leadership, as well as a number of staff from various departments.
