Visitors from the Water Environment Federation and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) toured three of USF’s labs in March 2013.
Dr. Yeh showed the visitors his lab’s NEWgenerator(TM) which reclaims nutrients from wastewater while simultaneously producing clean water and energy. The NEWgenerator(TM) is an anaerobic membrane bioreactor (anMBR) and can be used for decentralized wastewater treatment. The tour also highlighted work using wastewater to grow algae for biofuels.
