Welcome to CCL!

Group Picture, March 2015

The Combustion and Catalysis Lab is directed by Professor Marco J. Castaldi. The main focus is the thermal and catalytic conversion of carbon based material to desired products. For example, municipal solid waste and biomass to synthetic fuels, liquid fuels to hydrogen and greenhouse gases (carbon-based) to fuels.

shepard_hall

Earth Engineering Center | CCL at CCNY hosts and presents at Megacity Waste Management workshop in New York City. The AIChE Institute for Sustainability and the Earth Engineering Center in affiliation with the Chemical Engineering Department at the City College of New York held a workshop on April 25-26, 2016 to focus on New York City waste management and valorization. This workshop symposium brought together industry, academia, government agencies and municipalities to establish best practices in utilizing municipal solid waste as a resource. The outcome of this transdisciplinary program will be a roadmap for NYC that can be adapted as a model for sustainable waste management in megacities spanning technology, social and policy aspects. Participation included representatives from DSNY, NY DEP, and the US EPA.
