University Research

Researchers led by Iowa State University's Laura Jarboe are working to improve bioproduction of fuels and chemicals by finding enzymes that can withstand the heat and acidity used to lower industrial fermentation costs. The project is supported by a three-year, $969,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy.
Scientists at Stony Brook University have completed their assessment of water quality in Long Island’s estuaries in 2021 and the news is not good. During the months of June through October, every major bay and estuary across Long Island was afflicted by toxic algae blooms and oxygen-starved, dead zones. Excessive delivery of nitrogen from onsite wastewater has been cited as the cause of these disturbing events. The news was announced on October 7 at the Patchogue waterfront by Christopher J. Gobler, Ph.D., Endowed Chair of Coastal Ecology and Conservation at the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS) at Stony Brook University.
