Electron Donors for Environmental Remediation using Rendered Animal Co-Products
Rendered animal co-products can be used as electron donors to stimulate microbial respiration of reducible environmental contaminants including the chlorinated solvent trichloroethylene (TCE) and the metal hexavalent chromium. This strategy allows for inexpensive treatment, and increased contaminant transformation rates. More than 100 million peop...

Lignocellulose-Sulfur Composite Materials for Construction Applications (2017-025)
These composites chemically combine abundant agricultural and petrochemical wastes, allowing for practical reduction of inert wastes that can be used to either supplement or replace traditional construction materials. Approximately 7 million tons of waste sulfur and 5 million tons of waste lignocellulose are produced each year. Only a quarter of th...
