What is CR2C?

The William and Cloy Codiga Resource Recovery Center (CR2C) is a groundbreaking facility dedicated to accelerating the deployment and adoption of water and energy resource recovery systems. The CR2C facility, located on the Stanford campus near the Land, Buildings & Real Estate offices (LBRE), enables pilot testing of promising technologies for the recovery of resources (clean water, nutrients, energy, renewable materials) from wastes. We partner with Stanford researchers and groups from outside the university to move promising new technologies beyond the lab onward to impact.

CR2C Projects

Research Projects

CR2C works from the bench to demonstration scale. Active projects include scale-up of the SAF-MBR, an anaerobic secondary treatment system that generates energy, at the Silicon Valley Clean Water wastewater treatment plant; and wastewater-based epidemiology to track public health indicators in the sewer. We also host technologies from outside groups for testing on site. Contact us to initiate a project.

CR2C Training


CR2C Trains Undergraduates and Graduates in operations and maintenance of real industrial wastewater treatment systems. Student operators then help keep water flowing 24/7

Group Tour of CR2C


CR2C staff have provided over 200 tours of the facility to researchers, students, regulators, consulting engineers, public officials, and members of the general public.
