  • Resource Recovery from Waste Streams: Production of medium chain carboxylic acids from urban organic waste streams using anaerobic fermentation technology

Our research focuses on biological processes and chemical fate in engineered systems. We study process technologies and harness the power of microorganisms to treat drinking water and wastewater. Our researchers use cutting-edge molecular and chemical tools to characterize and improve water quality process performance.
