    The Women in Government Awards event was held on Friday, March 8, 2013 marking the third Jing Luoyear of this annual event. More than 110 women were nominated for awards. Dr. Jing Luo, PE, nominated by Laura Hagen Fairbanks, was selected as one of the two recipients for the distinguished Women in Government Leadership Award for demonstrating extraordinary leadership.

    Jing was selected for her cutting-edge work in reducing the carbon footprint of wastewater treatment by discovering sustainable uses for methane and carbon dioxide, which are byproducts of the wastewater treatment process and contribute to global warming. The judges were impressed with Jing’s research and efforts to exchange dialog with many experts in numerous fields and coordinate with many entities in evaluating opportunities to recover resources from wastewater.
