Reginald DesRoches, the William and Stephanie Sick Dean of the George R. Brown School of Engineering, and professor of civil and environmental engineering, and of mechanical engineering at Rice University, will deliver this year’s John A. Blume Distinguished Lecture at Stanford University.
Reusable water-treatment particles created at Rice University effectively eliminate BPA.
Rice University’s microscopic particles promise stronger building materials and more.
Nanotubes of the right diameter can prompt water inside to solidify into a square tube, transitioning into a kind of ice. The discovery could lead to new types of nanochannels devices, like nanoscale capacitors or syringes.
Baker Institute, SSPEED Center paper: New approaches needed to stop flooding.
Pedro J. J. Alvarez, the George R. Brown Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and director of the National Science Foundation’s Energy Research Center for Nanotechnology-Enabled Water Treatment at Rice University, has received the 2018 Perry L. McCarty Founders’ Award from the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors.
Rice University scientists have released the first results of extensive water sampling in Houston after the epic flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey. They found widespread contamination by E. coli, likely the result of overflow from flooded wastewater treatment plants.
