EEC|CCNY would like to welcome the following new members to the EEC research team: Rainiel, Xing, Yacine, Anta, Koffi, Joe, Sami, and Diana.  These students are CCNY undergraduates ranging from freshmen to seniors from both the Chemical Engineering and Environmental Science and Engineering (ESE) programs.  They will be conducting research spanning from gasification to waste reuse and we are excited for them to begin their research experience in sustainable waste management.

Tsiamis and Castaldi visit Enerkem commercial facility in Edmonton

  • November 29- December 2, 2016

    EEC|CCNY visited the Enerkem commercial facility in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada which began operations in 2016.  The Enerkem process gasifies MSW to produce methanol and ethanol.  The designed production capacity of the commercial facility is 100 million gallons of biofuels per year and Enerkem plans to begin production of ethanol later this year.  EEC|CCNY’s site visit was in conjunction with the closing down of a 3-year pilot study sponsored by the American Chemistry Council (ACC) and conducted by EEC|CCNY to determine the impact of non-recyclable plastics (NRP) on gasification.
