Xiaoguang Meng receives honorary master of engineering from Stevens
Date:9/28/2010

of Defense site in California, Dr. Meng deployed material and chemical filtration units to reduce naturally-occurring elevated levels of fluoride and arsenic from groundwater. His work resulted in dramatically reduced well operation costs and a substantial reduction of waste water and other products associated with the purification process.

In Bangladesh, Dr. Meng's water purification technologies are utilized to address a national drinking water contamination crisis. Up to 20 percent of deaths in Bangladesh are caused by arsenic poisoning, and tens of millions of lives are at critical risk of death or illness due to arsenic. Under Dr. Meng's direction, household filtration units for removal of arsenic from well water have been effectively utilized in three established arsenic-free villages. Responding to this success, the Technical Advisory Group of Bangladesh Arsenic Mitigation Water Supply Project has recommended this particular filtration process for nationwide use.

Dr. Meng has also developed a system for real-time analysis of arsenic that can provide inexpensive and almost instant water quality testing for us around the world. As water quality issues occur more frequently in developing countries, Dr. Meng has always considered cost of testing and filtration when designing his technologies. The real-time arsenic test sensors and household filtration units for Bangladesh will be affordable for even the world's lowest-income families, fundamentally changing the ability of individuals to have access to safe drinking water.

As the co-director of the Center for Environmental Systems (CES) at Stevens, Dr. Meng has mentored a large number of students involved in various aspects of environmental research over the past 15 years. He has co-authored 59 journal articles, a book, and four patents. He has seen nearly 30 of his projects funded, most of them in the pursuit of purifying water.
