Center for Sustainable Environmental Technologies

Through its research, education and outreach programs, the Center for Sustainable Environment Technologies (CSET) seeks to promote, develop, and demonstrated sustainable energy and environmental technologies, particularly those that address environmentally driven problems in energy utilization.  The center especially concentrates on thermochemical technologies that convert carbonaceous solid fuels into heat, power, and liquid fuels.  CSET organizes multidisciplinary teams of ISU faculty, staff, and students, as well as researchers from industry, national laboaratories, and other universities to address problems in sustainable energy development.  CSET is a center of the Institute for Physical Research and Technology, a network of research and technology transfer centers and industrial outreach programs at Iowa State University.
