Is is Possible

  • for a new source of scientific engineering and social investigation to emerge?
  • To turn unwanted wastes into clean fuel or other useful commodities?
  • To filter storm water of pollutants before it return to our rivers, aquafers, or other water ways?

Is it possible for campus waste, formerly destined to rot in landfills
polluting air and water, to become a bounty of healthy food?

Sustainable Technology Optimization Research Center

aquaponics

Sacramento State’s Sustainable Technology Optimization Research Center (STORC) is a highly collaborative teaching and learning model. STORC encourages innovation and facilitates teamwork between faculty and students from multiple educational disciplines by promoting, supporting, and housing ongoing sustainable technology research projects within a common functional space (e.g., Aquaponics, Alternative Energy Technologies, Composting, Bio-digestion, Water Technologies, etc.).

 

Because numerous research projects coexist within the same functional footprint, multiple technology integration can occur, making it possible for students and laypersons—in addtion to researchers and educators—to understand how sustainable technologies function and how apparent dissimilar technologies might contribute to the enhanced performance of other technologies.

As a practical, living laboratory, and a multi-disciplinary center for learning, STORC synergistically enhances the learning experience of all who venture exploration of the facility’s projects.

 

We encourage your exploration of STORC and welcome your sincere feedback.

Events

  • for a new source of scientific engineering and social investigation to emerge on campus?
  • To turn unwanted campus oils into clean fuel for campus equipment?
  • To filter storm water of pollutants before it returns to our aquifers?
  • At Sacramento State we believe it is.
