Development of New Wastewater Treatment Technologies
Wastewater treatment is becoming increasingly important due to diminishing of water resources, escalation of disposal costs, and implantation of strict discharge regulations. The treatment of wastewater for disposal or recycle is especially important to Wyoming, a semi-arid hydroclimatic region. 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.

Development of Cost-Effective Hg Removal Processes
Mercury is one of the increasingly concerned pollutants emitted from different industries such as coal-based power plants. Capture of low-concentration Hg in large-volume waste gas streams is expensive. The research group is actively involved in the development of inexpensive solid Hg sorbents.
