Faculty members associated with the Environmental Engineering Laboratory in the UL Lafayette College of Engineering have been involved with several projects dealing with remediation of contaminated sites and treatment of waste streams. Currently ongoing projects include anaerobic treatment of wastes from different food and meat processing plants, and algae cakes for making biogas, chemical and biological treatment of leachates from landfills, and in separation of oil-water suspensions from crude-oil production wells. Several of the researchers have been involved with the US Army Corps of Engineers’ efforts in remediation of military and civilian installations.
