Georgia Southern Engineering Students and Faculty Receive Accolades at EPA Student Design Competition

The goal of this project (Additively manufactured novel media for the enhancement of biological in situ stormwater remediation, link) was to develop and test a biofiltration module that uses a novel 3D-printed media that provides a very high surface area for microorganism attachment and development, which can be used as part of an existing or new biofiltration device to enhance nutrient (N and P) removal in runoff from urban or agricultural watersheds.

A team of senior design and capstone students from the Manufacturing Engineering department (Nicholas Wolf and Michael Jones) and the Civil Engineering department (John Collins, Corina Fluker, and Brendon Roberson) was working on this project under the supervision of Dr. Kamran Kardel (PI), Associate Professor of Manufacturing Engineering, and Dr. Francisco Cubas (co-PI), Associate Professor of Civil Engineering. The project and designed and fabricated biofilter was presented at the 18th annual EPA P3 (People, Prosperity, and the Planet, link) Conference in Washington D.C. and received very good attention from the EPA and other industry and federal agency visitors of the event.
