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. Learn how engineers turn waste into resources and how this scientific transformation impacts us all. Join as we welcome Dr. Belinda Sturm, of the University of Kansas Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering and KU Vice Chancellor for Research for Science On Tap.
