This REU site will complement a research and education initiative <br/>launched recently by SUN'Y-Buffalo's Department of Chemical Engineering, in which high-impact <br/>developments from chemical engineering science will be channeled into a significant regional and <br/>national advancement of waste minimization for pollution prevention. The proposed program encompasses recruitment of traditionally underrepresented student talent, novel research experience in <br/>environmental technology, a lecture series on ethics in research, interdisciplinary interaction with <br/>regional waste management and environmental remediation activities, and significant industrial <br/>cooperation. The program is strengthened by dedicated advising and assessment of students' careers in <br/>research. The Department of Chemical Engineering will provide 10% matching support in the form of <br/>travel monies for the research experience participants.
