Clemson University to begin field experiments on nuclear-waste storage
A team of more than 20 researchers from across the state will begin running field experiments at Clemson University next year to find the best ways of storing nuclear waste. Experiments have been done on a small scale in labs, but a new outdoor site will allow researchers to test underground storage methods on an intermediate scale in real-world conditions, said Clemson associate professor Brian Powell. “If we can do that, then our confidence in these waste disposal scenarios will be much, much higher,” Powell said. “This stands to be a premiere test-site in the country.” Read More

The Environmental Engineering & Earth Sciences undergraduate department is continuing renovations on campus.  Undergraduate services and faculty offices for Environmental Engineering, Biosystems Engineering and Geology are all now located in Brackett Hall.  If you are on campus, stop by 445 Brackett Hall to say hello to Cindy and Carol!

In May, 31 undergraduate students and 7 graduate students completed their degrees.  The undergraduate majors especially are thriving.  Each degree, Environmental Engineering, Biosystems Engineering, and Geology programs are all emphasizing hands-on and experiential learning.  The practical aspect of each major is drawing in students, and the department expects to have over 200 undergraduate students in the fall.
