Electrochemical Innovation for Process Intensification


The CETI-LAB was established by Prof. Gerardine (Gerri) Botte in August of 2019 when she joined the Chemical Engineering Department at Texas Tech University as Professor and the Whitacre Department Chair in Chemical Engineering. CETI’s mission is to integrate electrochemical engineering technology and fundamentals into chemical and biochemical processes to enable sustainable and distributed manufacturing of chemicals and materials, process intensification, energy/air/water sustainability, technologies for deep space exploration, and biomedical devices.

“We use electrochemical engineering as a platform. We collaborate with academics, industry, and multiple stakeholders to enable transformational and out of the box solutions to address grand challenges"
