- Distinguished Professor Maria Flytzani-Stephanopoulos, the Robert and Marcy Haber Endowed Professor in Energy Sustainability, delivered the 2019 Ensor Lecture at Washington State University, with a talk titled "The Changing Landscape of Heterogeneous Catalysts: Single Metal Atoms as Game‑Changers."
- ZwitterCo, a start-up founded by Tufts Gordon Institute and Civil and Environmental Engineering alumni, uses nanofilters to separate oil and grease from reusable water. The technique is based on Assistant Professor Ayse Asatekin's research.
- Distinguished Professor Maria Flytzani-Stephanopoulos, the Robert and Marcy Haber Endowed Professor in Energy Sustainability, received this year’s American Chemical Society Catalysis Lectureship for the Advancement of Catalytic Science with her Tufts colleague Charles Sykes, to be presented at the American Chemical Society national meeting in San Diego in August. The two faculty members received the honor for their work developing single-atom metal catalysts that could be significantly more efficient than those currently deployed in the production of goods such as fuel and plastics, the processing of food, and removing harmful gases in catalytic converters.
