我们追求以科学为基础, practical research to create impactful solutions for Natural Resource Extraction Environmental Risks.

任务

成立于2000年, 环境修复中心 and 评估 [CERA] undertakes outcome-orientated research to better understand the nature and extent of environmental impacts and works to collaboratively develop and validate opportunities to remedy these impacts and improve our Planet.

愿景

The vision underlying the proposed collaborative research programs is to use the State of 蒙大拿’s 50-year history in large and small-scale remediation and restoration as a learning platform for other states and regions. CERA achieves this through development of environmentally acceptable technologies and climate resilient remediation and restoration processes which provide an opportunity for permanent and sustainable site clean-up and restoration; land, water and waste reuse; and increased community value.

菲律宾十大彩票平台大学

菲律宾十大彩票平台大学, we pursue science-based and up-scalable practical research to create impactful solutions for communities, 环境, 行业和政府. 我们通过机会识别来实现这些目标, 创新与跨学科合作.

在20岁的时候th 世纪, 巴特城, 蒙大拿 (home of 蒙大拿 Tech) supplied the copper needs to electrify the US, 形成了数千英里的废弃地下硬岩矿. 今天, metal-laded acidic waters from these abandoned mines drain into the 伯克利坑 Superfund Site- which is the headwaters of the largest Superfund Site within the US. 孤峰之外, 蒙大拿州估计有超过3只,000个废弃的煤矿和超过3,全州有700个废弃的硬岩矿.  西部各州(包括阿拉斯加)估计有150只,000个废弃的硬岩矿, 全国有500家,这个国家有000个废弃的矿井. 没有干预, many of these abandoned mines continue to contaminate 环境 and in many cases, 包括巴特, 蒙大拿, result in multi-generational remediation and perpetuity management problems.  然而,它们也提供了一个潜在的机会. 

这个中心解决了许多重要的问题,包括

  • Can critical minerals be extracted from 矿业 wastes and power our next great electrification efforts?
  • Can the remediated lands provide greater use as renewable energy locations or restored lands for carbon sequestration?
  • Can we use our waste materials to aid in our environmental clean ups and restoration?
  • 随着气候变化,我们能否提高补救措施的弹性?

诸如此类的问题需要专业知识, 本中心提供的检测和结果沟通.

菲律宾十大彩票平台大学’s longstanding expertise in environmental 修复/恢复, 地质, 矿业, 矿物加工工程, 能源与地球化学, 除了与…有关外 高地贸易技术学院美国为应对这些挑战做好了准备. 相关的研究项目将评估复原力的机会, effective and value added remediation and restoration of impacted lands— thereby reducing the nation’s protracted site clean-up and underutilization of remediated properties. 该项目将与校园合作开展 先进材料加工中心(CAMP), 蒙大拿矿业和地质局(MBMG), 克拉克福克流域教育计划(CFWEP) and 高地上大学- in addition to current and future industry, academic and community partners.   

研究的焦点

The CERA collaborative research program is focused on both physical and societal aspects of environmental impact and restoration/re-use.

  • 推进科学发展 自然资源开采、废物管理和退役 practices to improve and create new technologies and products which remediate and beneficially reuse waste resources while minimizing impact
  • 开发和评估能源转换 环保技术, traditional knowledge and community socio-economic factors to make available for land reuse and environmental decision-making
  • 发展和评估 气候适应战略 which integrate carbon footprint assessment with technological development, 设计 and evaluation
  • 开发和评估可持续和可靠 修复/恢复 考虑到气候条件变化的技术
  • 制定和准备一份 未来的劳动力连续性, k - 12 (CFWEP), Trades and Technical [高地上大学] and graduate and undergraduate students to develop, 设计, 安装, operate and maintain our future natural resource facilities and restored ecological systems
