Environmental and Sustainable Technologies Laboratory
Technology working for people, society, and humanity
The EASTlab specializes in the design of technology systems that reduce environmental impact while advancing economic and societal objectives.
Our research evaluates and influences the design of consumer products, manufacturing processes, and water systems. Our research also includes the design of policy instruments and corporate strategies that allow environmentally beneficial products and processes to succeed in the marketplace with maximum economic efficiency for consumers, corporations, and taxpayers. Since its establishment in 2000, the EASTlab has produced over 100 original scholarly publications while creating over $10 million in research and education programs. Graduates of the EASTlab are continuing the mission in academia, government, and industry.
