NJIT R&D Short Takes
NJIT Student Named Outstanding Scholar
Mitigation and prevention of environmental hazards are the goals of research at the Otto York Center for Environmental Engineering and Science at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). Gordon A. Lewandowski, distinguished professor of chemical engineering at NJIT, is working with National Science Foundation funding to develop better engineering tools for prediction of the extent of contaminant plume migration in groundwater.
These tools are being tested with field data from a number of sites in New Jersey. The research involves a collaboration with faculty at Johns Hopkins University and the Institut National des Sciences Appliquees in Lyon, France. In conjunction with Piero Armenante, distinguished professor of chemical engineering at NJIT, and Basil Baltzis, professor and chair of chemical engineering at NJIT, he has also developed methods for the treatment of hazardous waste using aerobic and anaerobic bacteria and fungi, as well as computer-programmed sequencing batch reactors.
