Our research group conducts translational, trans-disciplinary research to advance the goals of sustainability by developing new knowledge and innovations in the area of sustainable solutions for water resources. We have had considerable impact on individuals, communities, and environmental quality in a regional, national, and international context. This work has resulted in five US patents issued and licensed in the past five years for new approaches for sustainable water treatment where we successfully engineered reactive filtration processes that are modeled on nature. These new technologies have met with commercial success for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment, and they have been installed across the United States and in six other countries, including the US municipality that was issued the lowest nutrient phosphorus discharge permit in the nation. The technologies are certified by the Korean Ministry of the Environment and are being implemented at numerous South Korean wastewater plants as a part of the country-wide Four Great Rivers Project. Our current pilot work configuring reactive filtration for catalytic oxidation of trace organic compounds and pathogens demonstrates high efficiency and practicality for emerging threats to public health and environmental quality. Over a million people across the globe now have softer impact on water resources because of these innovations.
