"We believe we have a responsibility to meet national and global imperatives in energy, environment, security, health, and economic prosperity. To this end, we have launched a bioenergy initiative
(bioenergy.wustl.edu) and created a new Department of Energy,
Environmental and Chemical Engineering (eec.seas.wustl.edu). Our goal
is to become a hub for environmental and energy research, education, innovation, and action."
Chancellor of Washington University in St. Louis
