The latest episode of “Growing Impact” explores how wastewater treatment plants could use solar power to improve their environmental performance, their communities and their finances. The podcast features Penn State researchers Christine Kirchhoff, an associate professor in the School of Engineering Design and Innovation and Civil and Environmental Engineering, Kimberly Van Meter, an assistant professor of geography in the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences, and Hannah Wiseman, a professor of law at Penn State Law and the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences and an Institute of Energy and the Environment faculty member. As a first step in determining how solar energy can be implemented at wastewater treatment plants, the team is working to develop a database of wastewater treatment plants in the U.S. that are using solar energy.
