Environmental remediation is the removal of contamination from media including air, water, and soil. Remediation is necessary to protect both human and environmental health. Environmental remediation for historic contamination is an ever-growing field with many new emerging technologies, including nanotechnologies. Current research in the field of Environmental remediation includes DNAPL plume predicting and modeling, demonstrating nitrogen treatment effectiveness, and Water Level Elevation Data Collection of the Grand Calumet River.
Examples of Research on Environmental Remediation by EEE Faculty Include:
“Darcy Flux and Water Level Elevation Data Collection of the Grand Calumet River, Hammond, IN,” Weston Solutions, U.S. Department of Energy, C. T. Jafvert.
“Predicting DNAPL Source Zone and Plume Response Using Site-Measured Characteristics,” University of Florida, Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program, P. S. C. Rao.
“Demonstrating Nitrogen Treatment Effectiveness through Innovative Bench Wetland Systems,” National Resources Conservation Services, U.S. Department of Agriculture, I. Chaubey. L. Bowling, R. Goforth.
