YeChan Lim (BSEEE '16, MSEEE '18) uses his EEE degree and environmental politics and policy minor to make big impacts with the EPA

Across the United States today, over 25 million children will climb aboard an iconic big yellow school bus. School buses travel a collective annual total of four billion miles, consuming approximately 400 million gallons of diesel fuel and adding to the 30% of total US energy-related CO2 emissions that are produced from gasoline and diesel fuel use (as of 2022). YeChan Lim, EEE alumnus (BSEEE ’16, MSEEE ’18) and Technical Lead of the EPA’s Clean Bus Program, has been working to improve this situation since the creation of the program in 2022.
