History

Director Gerardine Botte founded the Electrochemical Engineering Research Laboratory in January 2003. From its humble beginnings in Room 044 of Stocker Center with 440 square feet, the lab pioneered the development of electrochemical phenomena into practical uses, such as fuel cells and waste treatment. 

With prolific original research and development of applications with profound environmental benefits, the lab grew into the current Center for Electrochemical Engineering Research in October 2009. Under Botte’s continued leadership, CEER now tackles scientific problems ranging from pure science to highly applied technologies in its 20,000 square feet of independent laboratory space on Mill Street in Athens.
