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 people...

Characterization of a DIPEX Coated ZnS:Ag Disk for Quantification of Actinides in Groundwater
This technology features materials and systems useful in determining the existence of radionuclides in an aqueous sample. The materials provide the dual function of both extraction and scintillation to the systems. The systems are both portable and simple to use and, as such, can beneficially be utilized to determine the presence and concentration of...

MicroCED: Microbiological-based Chlorinated Ethene Destruction
MicroCED is an innovative treatment technology for the containment, detoxification and elimination of chlorinated ethenes (CE) in the environment. MicroCED consists of several novel microorganisms that are new to science. MicroCED rapidly and completely converts CE to non-toxic, safe end products without production or accumulation of toxic by-products....
