Penn State University Adjunct Professor, Principal Eco Applied Technologies


University Park, PA, USA.  Robert (Bob) Cameron, PhD. is Adjunct Professor at Penn State University. Bob spent more than two decades directing the global environmental programs of a Fortune 30 multi-national conglomerate.  In the late ‘70s in collaboration with NASA, he designed, permitted, and constructed the first constructed wetlands to treat wastewater from the natural gas industry.  Working on every continent except Antarctica, Bob designed award winning environmental programs based on sustainability concepts.  Later as president of his own corporation, he de-engineered historic buildings destined for the wrecking ball, which he then relocated and reconstructed with green architectural features.

Pursuing a life-long goal, he recently earned his doctorate from Penn State University at the Center for Green Roof Research. His thesis entailed the invention and construction of a functional architectural system to attenuate wastewater pollutants while reducing a building’s energy use and providing a platform for urban agriculture.  Currently, Bob has an appointment with the Department of Landscape Architecture at Penn State University and teaches collegiate courses and conducts research on greenroofs, livings walls, constructed wetlands, aquaponics, and artificial islands while also managing Eco Applied Technologies, a international consulting firm for sustainable technologies with commercial, residential, and industrial applications.  He has lectured on sustainable technologies around the world and in 2013 he literally circumnavigated the globe while working on environmental issues in numerous countries, including teaching environmental engineering for several months at a Chinese university which culminated in the design and construction of a living wall with the students.

With nearly three decades of experience with technical environmental issues on all continents except Antarctica, Bob is interested in subcontracting international opportunities in sustainable technologies.

Bob Cameron is also a 2017 Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit Advisory Group Member.
