Environmental chemistry and technology

The environmental chemistry and technology area occupies administrative, instructional and research space in the Water Science and Engineering Laboratory. The research areas, including trace element and mercury clean laboratories, are designed for research in aquatic chemistry, air pollution chemistry, and environmental technology. Shop facilities (electronics/mechanical) allow for the fabrication of specialized equipment tailored to field and laboratory research needs. Other specialized facilities include areas for investigating air pollution chemistry, ceramic membrane technologies, hazardous material remediation, and development of energy storage devices.
