But there's reasons you won't yet find one on aisle five.
Three research projects, funded with nearly $13 million, involve University of Alabama scientists studying the feasibility of pumping carbon dioxide into the ground as an alternative to releasing the greenhouse gas into the atmosphere.
A device shown to reduce vehicle emissions heads down the commercialization road.
A high-tech version of a basic principle used 8,000 years ago in reducing unwanted materials is at the heart of an effort by University of Alabama scientists to lessen the Gulf oil spill's impact on fragile coastal marshes.
Shells from mollusks presented to the dead during ancient funeral ceremonies are keys to helping a University of Alabama geologist gauge ocean movements near the Peruvian coast from as much as 13,000 years ago.
A group of University of Alabama researchers regularly endure the Arctic's frigid conditions to learn more about the relationships between the area's free-flowing streams and the organisms that survive, even thrive, because of those streams.
A UA hydrogeologist, who developed a computer model that became the industry standard for predicting movement of groundwater contaminants, is part of a team focusing on the nation's most contaminated nuclear site.
From chemists to physicists to engineers, researchers throughout The University of Alabama campus are working to develop systems designed to reduce harmful emissions, produce new ways to harness energy, improve efficiency and increase fuel flexibility.
When Dr. Michael Steinberg was 11, he was cutting through a coastal pine forest to go fishing while he and his parents were vacationing near Fort Meyers, Fla. As he was walking, he caught sight of three big woodpeckers, two of which seemed to be engaged in some kind of courtship ritual.
