The Environmental Protection Agency has awarded a $10M grant to Carnegie Mellon's Center for Air Quality, Climate and Energy Solutions, which is run by Allen Robinson, professor of Engineering and Public Policy and Department Head of Mechanical Engineering.

According to a news release from the College of Engineering, “This grant from the EPA recognizes the College of Engineering for its leadership in multidisciplinary and adaptive problem solving,” said James Garrett, dean of the College of Engineering. “The new center is excellent progress toward our strategic goal to bring more research centers into the university and it leverages our strengths in engineering to improve the quality of life for people and ensure the well-being of our planet.”

Carnegie Mellon’s College of Engineering has 10 faculty members who will collaborate with experts from seven other participating institutions across North America. In addition to Robinson, other project leaders include: Peter Adams, professor of civil and environmental engineering and engineering and public policy; Spyros Pandis, research professor of chemical engineering; and Albert Presto, assistant research professor of mechanical engineering.
