Featured Faculty: Slav W. Hermanowicz

Ian Clark, Ph.D. student in Environmental Engineering, won a prestigious 2010 International Huber Technology Prize in the competition titled "Water supply and wastewater treatment - New solutions to old problems."

Ian works with CEE Professor Slav Hermanowicz and Professor John Coates (Plant and Microbial Biology, UC Berkeley) on bioelectrical reactors. The award was presented by Dr. Grambow representing the Bavarian Ministry of the Environment in an official ceremony in Munich, Germany at the IFAT environmental technology trade fair. 

At the fair, Ian presented a poster, "Bio-electrically Stimulated Microbial Oxyanion Reduction," describing a method of electrochemically fueling microbial reduction of perchlorate, nitrate, and other oxyanions in groundwater.

Congratulations, Ian!
