A new collaborative research group known as the Tuskegee University Energy and Environmental Research Unit (TUE2RU) was initiated in spring 2010 by some faculty, students, and researchers in the College of Engineering, Architecture and Physical Sciences (CEAPS). The Unit will engage in the development of inter-disciplinary research, education and outreach programs in the following initial areas:

  1. Water treatment  methodologies for the  removal of arsenic and other contaminants in water using  Fenton's reagent
  2. Water/air disinfection or decontamination using novel photo catalysis technology
  3. Carbon capture and sequestration using electrolytic cells
  4. Hydrogen production, storage and conversion using Fuel Cells
  5. Advanced corrosion studies on Ferro-chromium steels under extreme conditions for simulation and development of  Generation IV nuclear reactor materials
  6. Pyrolysis behavior of organic materials for production of biochar and other materials
