Risk Assessment and Terrestrial Plant Toxicity of Remediated Heavy Hydrocarbon Impacted Soil

The objective of the research was to determine the short-term ecological toxicity of ozonation byproducts on seed germination and on the mutagenic properties of bacteria. By helping define the eco-toxicity of ozonation techniques, this research will be used when considering the feasibility of field deployment of the previously established ozone techniques. Future research will focus

Heavy Hydrocarbon Removal using Ozonation Techniques

The objective of the research was to study the efficiency of heavy hydrocarbon removal using ozone gas. The research determined that doses of ozone gas in the soil can break down long-carbon chains into forms that are easily digestible by bacteria in the soil. By helping define the most effective loading rates and dosages, this

Selective Electro-Fermentation of Scenedesmus Acutus

The goal of this research is to develop a flat-plate reactor, which is a type of Microbial Electrolysis Cell (MEC), to maximize the degradation of proteins and carbohydrates while conserving the highest number and quality of lipids of the lipid-rich algae, Scenedesmus Acutus. The rates of gas production will be monitored to support the occurrence
