Entrepreneurial Solutions for Environmental Problems
Millette is from Trinidad and Tobago, an island nation that needs a way to manage a waste problem in a country with limited space. Millette is exploring if a circular economy can be the solution.
Education: A Powerful Tool for Sustainability
Moore is researching nanomaterials and their use in clean energy technologies. She’s sharing this knowledge with future generations, who have the power to impact the environment.
A new book by Nabil Nasr, associate provost and director of RIT’s Golisano Institute for Sustainability (GIS), brings together many of the world’s thought leaders on the fundamentals of remanufacturing and its vital link to resource efficiency and the circular economy—including two additional authors from RIT.
For the ninth consecutive year, RIT has been named one of the greenest universities by The Princeton Review—achieving a “Green Rating” score of 97 out of a possible 99—the university’s highest rating ever.
In a paper published in the peer-reviewed journal Resources, Conservation & Recycling, engineers at the New York State Pollution Prevention Institute (NYSP2I) mapped out how a problematic waste material could be used as a sustainable—and profitable—replacement for cement.
