Welcome

The Otto H. York Center for Environmental Engineering and Science (YCEES) is the home for many of New Jersey Institute of Technology's (NJIT) environmental centers, programs and initiatives. The Centers are housed in NJIT's $11 million Otto H. York Center for Environmental Engineering and Science, the first building in the nation especially constructed for cooperative public and private research in hazardous waste management. With its $2.4 million in equipment, it is a state-of-the-art laboratory facility.

 

Materials Characterization

In addition to the research conducted at YCEES, the facility houses the latest analytical capabilities through the Environmental Analytical Laboratory, GeoEnvironmental 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.
