Urban Waste Management and Research Center (University New Orleans)

University of New Orleans

The UNO Urban Waste Management and Research Center's (UWMRC or Center) mission addresses urban problems associated with municipal solid waste, wastewater, urban runoff, surface and ground water quality, and air quality. Its major goal is to provide an integrated multimedia waste management approach to the solution of urban environmental problems, and to advance the state of the art of urban waste management and pollution prevention through technology transfer.

The Center's research activities concentrate on urban environmental problems. The outreach activities of the Center are designed to promote community involvement and education on environmental issues and problems. Policy and technology transfer are key elements in the Center's programs. To that end the Center will conduct research projects relevant to urban needs. It will provide workshops, short courses, seminars and initiate training programs in urban waste management. The Center will also serve as a clearinghouse for technology and promote citizen involvement and education to help bridge the gap between governmental requirements and the needs of municipalities and industry. The Center will focus on research that will develop the technologies necessary to further this goal, and provide a source of trained graduate engineers and scientists. The Center will endeavor to become a catalyst in providing an environmental awareness for all of UNO's academic programs for the New Orleans metropolitan area, and for the nation.
