The mission of The Electrochemical Society is to advance theory and practice at the forefront of electrochemical and solid state science. Metrohm USA’s support helps ECS members make key discoveries that address challenges such as renewable energy, food safety, water sanitation, and medical diagnosis and care.
Beginning in the fall of 2002, ECS began recognizing long-term institutional members of the society with the Leadership Circle Awards. This award is a way of recognizing and thanking its partners in electrochemistry and solid state science and is granted in the anniversary year an institutional member reaches a milestone level.
The award was presented on May 30th at the 229th ECS Meeting in San Diego.
This Seed Could Bring Clean Water to MillionsNews
Biomedical Engineering and Chemical Engineering Professors Bob Tilton and Todd Przybycien recently co-authored a paper with Ph.D. students Brittany Nordmark and Toni Bechtel, and alumnus John Riley, further refining a process that could soon help provide clean water to many in water-scarce regions. The process, created by Tilton’s former student and co-author Stephanie Velegol, uses sand and plant materials readily available in many developing nations to create a cheap and effective water filtration medium, termed “f-sand.”READ MORE
