Research Centers & Programs
The Algal Ecotechnology Center (AEC) is an organizational unit for advancing the design and implementation of ecologically-engineered, algal-based technologies for water quality management and economic development.
Under a grant from Northeast SARE, a team of research scientists, extension agents and farmers from Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey are working to develop new systems of no-herbicide no-till planting of early vegetables into a seedbed prepared by low-residue winter-killed cover crops such as forage radish.
The Department of Environmental Science and Technology is developing into a world-class center of discovery and teaching that will innovate and educate to deal with increasingly complex environmental conditions.
The Department serves the campus community as a key, foundational unit of its increasingly broader emphasis on the environment. It is unique among campus units because it is comprised of a critical mass of faculty fully involved in environmental science and problem solving.
