Energy and Environment

Development of New Wastewater Treatment Technologies

The research team has been studying different cost-effective technologies such as sorption to addresses the challenging issues associated with treatment and management of wastewater generated from various processes especially those related to energy production. [More]


Environmental Microbiology

Research is largely focused on anaerobic processes: microbial transformations of organic contaminants in soils, sediments and ground water; microbial immobilization of heavy metals; electron transport in metal-reducing bacteria; iron cycling in cold alpine lakes; impact of carbon sequestration on subsurface microbial processes; fate and transport of nanoparticles in environmental systems; reversal of passivation of Fe° permeable reactive barriers.

Interfaces in the Environment

Membranes, Particles & Nanotechnology

Our research group focuses on problems associated with physicochemical processes in engineered and natural environmental systems. Understanding and ultimately controlling the many complex mechanisms that occur at environmental interfaces may resolve many of these problems. As is the case for environmental engineering as a whole our work falls at the junction of many different disciplines, including colloid and interface science, chemical engineering, nanotechnology, microbiology, and materials science.

Engineering Natural Systems for a Substainable Future

An estimated 13% of the United States land mass is underlain by coal deposits, an immense energy resource. Not all the coal is mineable but much of it contains natural gas. One way that un-mineable coal resources have been exploited in the past is through the extraction of coal bed methane (CBM). Its simple chemical nature (it is composed primarily of methane) makes it cleaner burning than coal generating up to 50% less carbon dioxide per unit energy. [More]


Water Resources Data System

The Water Resources Data System (WRDS) is a clearinghouse of hydrological and climatological data for the State of Wyoming. [More]



The Water Resources/Environmental Science and Engineering (WRESE) program serves as a focal-point for water-related graduate research and education. [More]


Wyoming Water Research Program

The Office of Water Programs administers the Wyoming Water Research Program (WRP), including activities under the National Institutes of Water Resources (NIWR). The WRP is a cooperative Federal, State, and University effort. [More]
