We are the 2020 WERC Design contestants traveling to New Mexico in April to compete at the environmental design competition!
Every April since 1999, Ohio University’s Russ College of Engineering and Technology has sent teams of students and faculty to the Waste-Management Education Research Consortium (WERC) design contest held on the campus of New Mexico State University in Las Cruces. This competition gives the passionate students of the Russ College a chance to further develop their teamwork skills while solving challenging real-world problems. At the contest, the students network with and are judged by engineering professionals from academia, government, and industry. This year, Ohio University is sending 18 students to represent two different teams that are working on different engineering tasks. Team one, representing Task 4, is challenged with designing a solution to remove fluoride from a mining wastewater stream and bringing the levels below the EPA’s drinking water standard. Team two, representing Task 5, is challenged with designing an energy efficient process that will not only produce clean water from a stream recovered from oil and gas operations, but will recover the rare earth elements at the same time. Please support our two teams as we head to New Mexico in April for the 30th annual WERC design competition! Thank you!
Your gift will support student activities in the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department at Ohio University's Russ College of Engineering and Technology, including students traveling to the 2020 WERC environmental design contest.
Although this campaign has concluded, it's easy to give to Ohio University and support the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Student Activities Fund.
