CEE at Illinois Assistant Professor Jeremy Guest has received the 2016 Paul L. Busch Award from the Water Environment & Reuse Foundation. The $100,000 prize will support Guest’s work on biotechnology development for resource recovery from wastewater.

“My students and I are honored and excited to have our work acknowledged in this way,” Guest said. “The award will be a catalyst that enables us to transform scientific discovery into technological innovation, linking fundamental research on microalgal metabolism and biochemistry to industry applications at water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs) in need of 21st century solutions to energy and nutrient management challenges.”
