1 Dr. Samuel P. Massie Chairs of Excellence Professorship of Engineering in the Environmental Disciplines byRoberto Lorán Vice-Chancellor & Samuel P. Massie Chair of Excellence Universidad del Turabo

2 DOE Program Manager Ms. Malika Hobbs Washington DC Dr. Samuel P. Massie Chairs of Excellence

3 Who we are the US Department of Energy initiated the program in 1994 by committing $14.7 million Dr. Samuel P. Massie a reputed African- American scientist champion of the cause of minority education in the US It comprises 10 minority serving institutions to produce top-level graduates in environmental disciplines and produce ground breaking environmental research

4 Who we are (cont) Florida A&M U. – Dr. BenWang Hampton U. – Dr. Adeyinka A. Adeyiga Howard U. – Dr. James H. Johnson Jr. Morgan State U. – Dr. Donald Helm North Carolina A&T U. – Dr. Shoou-Yuh Chang Prairie View A&M U. – Dr. Ing Chang Southern U. – Dr. Patrick Carriere Tennessee State U. – Dr. Lonnie Sharpe Jr. Turabo U. – Dr. Roberto Lorán Tuskegee U. – Dr. Nosa Egiebor

5 What we have done * $37.1 M in grants in addition to DOE funds 80 research projects underway for industry and government entities (75 with significant findings) over 250 presentations in national and international conferences 9 books, 14 book chapters and numerous publications in scientific journals partnered in over 77 research-related and 25 education-related projects * Initial 8-year-period

6 Areas of activity Academic offerings Research Outreach activities International projects Collaboration

7 evaluation of stabilization & solidification waste- forms of mixed wastes, microbial stability of ceramic-coated metal container materials for use in the Yucca Mountain Radioactive Waste Repository design of a novel gas chromatographic system for the analysis of radioactive uranium gases modeling of movement of tritium in the vadose zone computer simulation of combustion process for pollution studies Research projects

8 development of computer code to model three- dimensional transient subsidence design and assembly of a portable gas chromatographic system for the analysis of corrosive uranium fluoride gases demonstration of bioremediation option for PCBs, PCB and explosive contaminated sites; molecular modeling of hydrophobic organic contaminants uptake and sequestration by soil organic mater Research projects

9 development of a bio-sensor technique to detect agricultural contaminants in the environment removal of arsenic and organic contaminants from waste water by natural wasters design of an innovative sandbox for conducting research of contaminant migration through the vadose zone optimization of performance in molten carbonate fuel cells Research projects

10 Projects with disadvantaged communities and institutions:  community technology centers  expose students environmental issues  computer literacy to farmers  enhance math & science education  collect and analyze soil and water samples by high school students Each Massie Chair has initiated outreach programs in their neighboring communities. Outreach activities

11 Latin America & Caribbean (16 countries) Africa (Nigeria & Ghana) Europe (Germany, UK, Italy, Netherlands)) Asia (India, Viet Nam, China, Taiwan)) Australia International projects individually or as a group

12 Areas of collaboration application of expertise as an environmental team in the testing and evaluation of polluted sites and environmental management use of basic research to solve environmental problems engineering and environmental services as consultants educational awareness on environmental issues

13 Environmental capabilities Air pollution and treatment Bioremediation Environmentally conscious manufacturing Ground water contaminant treatment Hazardous waste treatment Mixed waste treatment Pollution prevention and waste minimization Radioactive waste management Solid waste management Subsurface contaminant transport and fate Water and waste water treatment
