Welcome

The Otto H. York Center for Environmental Engineering and Science (YCEES) at the New Jersey Institute of Technology's (NJIT) offers core and shared research laboratory facilities as a resource for many interdisciplinary research programs and initiatives. The Otto H. York Center was the first building in the nation especially constructed for cooperative public and private research in hazardous waste management. Today it has diversified into many other areas with research projects in nanotechnology, drug delivery, particle engineering, microfluidics, membrane science, environmental science and engineering, and biomedical engineering.

Researchers from Chemistry, Environmental Science, Chemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Material Science and Pharmaceutical Engineering have laboratories in the Center with extensive facilities in microcopy, mass spectrometry, and material characterization . The Center also houses the National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center on Structured Particulates. The York Center research projects are funded with faculty grants from NSF, NIH, NASA, NIEHS, DOD, and leading industries.
 

Materials Characterization

In addition to the research conducted at YCEES, the facility houses the latest analytical capabilities through the Environmental Analytical Laboratory and the new Keck Laboratory that is focused on microscopic analysis including transmission electron microscopy.

 

Technologies

YCEES is also involved in bringing new technologies to market. Over the past 15 years technologies have included: Pneumatic Fracturing (Commercialized); Fly Ash in Concrete and Membrane Separation (Nearing Commercialization); NOx Treatment (Pilot Scale); Several Remediation Techniques; Diesel exhaust particulate removal; Biofiltration; and Bioremediation of Gas Plant Sites. Many of these technologies are now available for licensing.

We would be pleased to talk to you about participation in any of these opportunities.
