Columbia, Missouri -  University of Missouri, a Univerdant member, has announced that it has received a gift from Enterprise Leasing, the St. Louis-based rental car company in the amount of $2 million to study biofuels and energy efficiency.  The University of Missouri is deeply involved with a broad spectrum of research ranging from sustainable agriculture, biofuels and sustainable building design to modular nuclear reactors and radioisotope batteries.  

Enterprise Holdings owns the Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands and was founded in 1957 by St. Louis native Jack Taylor. Taylor named the company after the USS Enterprise aircraft carrier, which he served on during World War II.  Enterprise Holdings has more than 74,000 employees, and more than 600 of those, including several senior executives, are Missouri alumni.

It’s a really nice idea! This is a great opportunity for those manufacturers that want to have a high quality product that offered. Its not ordinary project to the company, but and innovation in the field. I’m sure this will become a popular version everywhere and the only thing you need to be sure here is the quality and the branded name.

As for me I support this idea too! In my opinion we should extend this topic in our cv resumes in order to make more people know about it! Thanks for sharing
