Efficient Engineered Systems

Leader: Nirmala Khandan

Urban water infrastructure includes water and wastewater treatment plants, water distribution systems and runoff and wastewater collection systems. To enhance the efficiency and resiliency of these systems we will conduct fundamental research on novel modes of energy recovery and water treatment using membranes, biological treatment processes and state-of-the-art control technology. Our new approaches will be integrated into pilot and full-scale testbeds that will be evaluated for performance and sustainability with a triple-bottom line assessment.
