2018 - Member of the National Academy of Engineering For contributions to the practice and pedagogy of bioremediation and environmental nanotechnology.
2011 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
Environmental chemistry, Nanotechnology, Inorganic chemistry, Nanomaterials and Antibacterial activity are his primary areas of study. His Environmental chemistry study combines topics in areas such as Organic matter, Bioremediation, Benzene, Biodegradation and Toluene. His studies in Nanotechnology integrate themes in fields like Water treatment, Biophysics, Risk analysis and Bacteria.
His work deals with themes such as Nuclear chemistry, Singlet oxygen, Zinc, Adsorption and Aqueous solution, which intersect with Inorganic chemistry. His research in Nanomaterials intersects with topics in Nanoparticle, Manufactured nanoparticles, Carbon nanotube and Particle size. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Silver nanoparticle, Extracellular polymeric substance, Toxicity, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and Sonication.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental chemistry, Biodegradation, Bioremediation, Environmental engineering and Bacteria. His studies deal with areas such as Nitrate, Bioaugmentation, Environmental remediation and Groundwater as well as Environmental chemistry. As a part of the same scientific study, Pedro J. J. Alvarez usually deals with the Biodegradation, concentrating on Benzene and frequently concerns with Gasoline.
His Bioremediation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Waste management, 1,4-Dioxane and Pollutant. Pedro J. J. Alvarez combines subjects such as Hydrocarbon and Aquifer with his study of Environmental engineering. His study in Bacteria is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Biochemistry and Microbiology.
Pedro J. J. Alvarez spends much of his time researching Chemical engineering, Bacteria, Photocatalysis, Microbiology and Environmental chemistry. Pedro J. J. Alvarez has researched Chemical engineering in several fields, including Adsorption, Catalysis, Calcination, Carbon and Aqueous solution. His Bacteria research integrates issues from Chromium, Botany and Escherichia coli.
His Photocatalysis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Water treatment, Microstructure, Portable water purification and Nuclear chemistry. His Environmental chemistry research includes elements of Mercury sulfide, Methylation, Soil water, Biodegradation and Bioaugmentation. His studies examine the connections between Biodegradation and genetics, as well as such issues in Soil Pollutants, with regards to Environmental remediation.
His primary areas of investigation include Adsorption, Photocatalysis, Reuse, Pollutant and Chemical engineering. The study incorporates disciplines such as Photochemistry, Oxidizing agent and Environmental economics in addition to Photocatalysis. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Photochemistry, Effluent is strongly linked to Selective adsorption.
His research integrates issues of Wastewater and Environmental protection in his study of Reuse. His study looks at the relationship between Pollutant and fields such as Nitrogen, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. As part of his studies on Chemical engineering, he often connects relevant subjects like Carbon.
