Science On Tap: Resource Production from the Bottom Up
March 18, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
In the last 20 years, environmental engineers have pushed the boundary of wastewater treatment beyond public health protection. Today, treatment plants are referred to as “Water and Resource Recovery Facilities.” The N-E-W purpose of wastewater treatment is to recover Nutrients – Energy – Water, increasingly limited resources for our increasingly urban and populated societies.
At this KU Natural History Museum Science on Tap event, learn how engineers turn waste into resources and how this scientific transformation impacts us all, with special guest Dr. Belinda Sturm, KU Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering & Associate Vice Chancellor for Research.
