Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering graduate students Qi Yao and Adrian Romero received the American Chemical Society (ACS) AGRO Division 2016 Education Award. 

Both Yao and Romero will present their work at the 2016 ACS National Meeting taking place in Philadelphia, Pa., this August. Yao was recognized for her work titled, "Assessing the Effectiveness of Vegetative Environmental Buffers in Mitigating Air Pollutant Emissions from Poultry Houses." Romero was recognized for his work, "Improving continuous monitoring of VOC’s emissions from alternative fertilizers."

Yao and Romero, both of whom are students in Professor Alba Torrents' research group, were chosen for the award based on a careful ACS review of extended abstracts and letters of nomination. The award carries $800 in cash prizes. 

ACS is the world's largest scientific society with more than 158,000 members in all fields of chemistry.
