Research Category: Center for Clean Industrial and Treatment Technologies (CenCITT) , Targeted Research

Objective:

CenCITT's goal is to help create industrial facilities in which waste is minimized through the application of economically sound technologies, and a combination of optimized manufacturing processes, treatment operations and reuse of materials.

Accordingly, the Center aims to aid industry in developing and identifying clean technologies to meet society's needs, and at the same time meet stringent U.S. environmental regulations.

Approach:

To accomplish its mission, CenCITT forms alliances with industrial research and technology transfer consortia, government agencies and other university researchers. Two such consortia include the Center for Waste Reduction Technologies (CWRT) and the National Center for Manufacturing Science (NCMS). These alliances allow CenCITT to maintain a broad resource pool for identifying the high-priority, clean technology needs of industry.

CenCITT takes industry's needs and develops programs to create innovative tools and technologies that are cost-effective and environmentally sound. Starting with industry and ending with industry. By using this approach, research stays focused on industrial needs; and rapid technology transfer takes place. CenCITT is the vital link between the needs of industry and the innovations that come from university collaborative research.
