Climate Change and Solutions

A continuous growth in the production and use of fossil fuels has caused an increase in greenhouse gas emissions and has resulted in increased atmospheric accumulation. Greenhouse gases, CO2 and CH4 being the main ones, due to their high absorption coefficients with respect to...

Organic Carbon Sequestration

Terrestrial soils constitute the principal pool of terrestrial carbon with 2300 Peta (1015) g OC in the top 3 m. Our first strategy is both a preventive and curative one and involves ensuring that this organic carbon is not oxidized and released as CO2...

Sequestering CO2

We are researching several strategies to sequester CO2 from flue gas emissions, the primary ones are...

Climate Modeling

Global climate change predictions are based on integrated biophysics biogeochemical process models. Soil organic carbon (SOC) dynamics a key component of these models is however included as classic soil organic pools...

Bioremediation

We are developing bioremediation/phytoremediation technologies for heavy metals, radionuclides, and organic pollutants. Organic pollutants such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, polychlorinated biphenyls, polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans, and...

Biofertilizer Catalyst

Our global food production needs to increase by 50% in the next 20 years to sustain the increasing world population and prosperity. Although theoretical estimates have suggested that the accumulated P (an essential plant macronutrient) in agricultural soils is sufficient...

Human Health and Solutions

With increasing global population, and with urban environment in the process of becoming the most dominant human habitat for the first time in history, current human health challenges may be further exacerbated. Toxic trace metal contamination in urban soil...

Biomaterials

Biomaterials for human tissue augmentation are complex biominerals. Bone and teeth for example are chemically similar to carbonate apatite (calcium phosphate). We are therefore using biomimetic approaches...

Chelators

A human health concern is usually associated with excessive exposures to metals that cause toxic effects. These metals may include those non-essential to human body, such as As, Cd, Hg and Pb that can be toxic even at trace levels...
