Our Mission

To maximize the industrial, environmental, and social benefits of domestic energy development by advancing the treatment technologies necessary to recover resources from produced waters in a sustainable, economical fashion.

Areas of Research

The Center for Excellence in Produced Water Management (CEPWM) provides innovative science and engineering research for application in the oil and gas industry for the purposes of reducing environmental impacts, improving industry process efficiencies, increasing profitability, and enhancing society benefits.

We do this with a concentration on three key areas:

Membrane Technology

Development for Desalination

and Organics Removal

RESOURCE POTENTIAL AND TECHNO-ECONOMIC ASSESSMENT OF RARE EARTH ELEMENT (REE) RECOVERY FROM OIL FIELD BRINES

Who we are/leadership

We are a team of scientists, engineers, innovators, and educators who have joined together to create synergies across multiple areas of produced water management. Collectively, we represent 100+ years of experience across our respective areas of expertise.
