UB Center for Integrated Waste Management

The Center for Integrated Waste Management is a research and community service organization located in the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering - School of Engineering and Applied Sciences of the University at Buffalo, the State University of New York. The Center brings together those in academia, government, and industry who are seeking innovative solutions to environmental challenges.

The Center promotes the development and application of improved environmental technologies and management methods for 1) more effectively remediating past environmental contamination and promoting redevelopment of formerly contaminated properties, and 2) preventing, reducing, reusing, and recycling industrial and municipal waste streams.

The Center provides assistance to communities, industries, businesses, public agencies, and other non-profit organizations. Recent focus areas include:

COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE:

Center personnel provide technical and planning assistance to communities such as Lackawanna, New York that face challenges posed by environmentally contaminated properties.


RECYCLING/RESOURCE CONSERVATION:

Establishing the New York State Tire Derived Aggregate Program to help expand the knowledge of how recycled tires can serve beneficial uses of recycled tires in Civil Engineering applications in New York State. (see www.tdanys.buffalo.edu).


PUBLIC EDUCATION/TRAINING:

Helping to prepare residents of Brownfield-impacted communities for employment in the environmental restoration field through the U.S. EPA Brownfields Job Training program.
