Prof. Xiaoguang Meng receives honorary master of engineering from Stevens
Date:9/27/2010

For his significant and global contributions to clean water and environmental causes, his dedication as an outstanding educator, and his commitment to invention and the pursuit of discovery, Professor Xiaoguang Meng received an honorary Master of Engineering degree from Stevens Institute of Technology at the university's annual Convocation Ceremony on September 8, 2010.

Dr. Meng, a professor in the Charles V. Schaefer, Jr. School of Engineering and Science, has dedicated his career to teaching and research in physicochemical treatment of arsenic and heavy metals in water and solids. He has gained international recognition for research into the interaction of heavy metals, uranium, and inorganic compounds at the metal hydroxide-water interface and the fate and transport of arsenic and heavy metals in an aquatic environment. Through this work he has developed a number of patented technologies that have been successfully used to remove toxins from contaminated water, in the process saving lives around the world and protecting the environment.

Arsenic is a global problem, with up to 140 million people at risk due to arsenic contamination in drinking or irrigation water. Dr. Meng has been a pioneer in applying emerging nanotechnologies to create breakthrough filtration systems serving the worldwide need for clean and safe water. Due to nanomaterials' superior properties for reacting with or absorbing contaminants, Dr. Meng's filters are able to remove heavy metals and even radioactive elements from water quickly and effectively. As a result of Dr. Meng's research on metallic iron and co-precipitation filtration systems, full-scale water treatment units are currently operating at multiple locations around the United States. These units have been successfully restoring environmental remediation sites since the 1990s, treating contaminated groundwater that could have had disastrous, long-term effects on local communities.
