The Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Utah collaborates with other departments and industrial professionals through established institutes and centers. The research organizations with which our faculty are most involved include the following:

The Energy & Geoscience Institute is “ the largest geoscience technology consortium of its kind in the world, with over 60 members in the Corporate Associates Program from 18 countries.” This institute focusses on development of hydrocarbon resources and carbon-neutral geothermal energy for both industrial and governmental applications.

The Intermountain Industrial Assessment Center provides no-cost energy consulting services to manufacturers in the Intermountain Region. Assessments typically require one day on site in your facility and we typically identify 10-20% energy and productivity savings.

The goal of the Program for Air Quality, Health and Society is to “become a national leader in understanding the consequences of air pollution for human health and economic development.” This program was created in December of 2012 and aims to catalyze collaborative research across several departments at the University of Utah.
