Justin Whiteley (PhDMechEngr’16), co-founder and CTO of Emergy Foodsand and CEO Tyler Huggins (PhDCivEngr’16) have closed on their first round of venture capital funding and have constructed a manufacturing facility just outside Boulder where they plan to produce their new source of protein. The protein, a fast-growing microorganism has the potential to decrease environmental tolls associated with raising meat or crops and could also be a promising source of nutrition in developing regions of the world.

Professor Joseph Ryan’s Oil and Gas Contamination of Jackson County Waters project is one of 33 faculty-led projects selected to receive the CU Boulder Outreach Award for 2019-20. The Outreach Awards were created 20 years ago to fund university research, teaching and creative work that has a direct impact on public needs.
Professor Srubar’s research got featured on 9 News. Srubar's goal is to create a living hybrid building material that exhibits both structural and biological function. The possibilities for his work are endless and especially interesting in extreme environments and military applications. Bricks could self-heal after natural disasters or enemy fire, or act as alarms by changing color when there are toxins in the air.
"This is not a problem that’s going away," emphasized Paul Chinowsky, a civil engineer at the University of Colorado Boulder. "The impacts are not something that is 10 years away," he added. "It's something that’s happening right now."
ShanghaiRanking Consultancy’s Global Ranking of Academic Subjects has taken notice of the quality of CU Boulder’s programs, ranking environmental science and engineering 26th overall and water resources 15th overall in its 2019 report.
