Nontarget screening for urine treatment

Happy to share the product of our recent collaboration with colleagues at Stanford (Will Tarpeh), Michigan (Krista Wigginton and Nancy Love), and Buffalo (Diana Aga)!

In this study, we coupled treatment technologies for nutrient removal/recovery from urine with non-target analysis to assess the fate of pharmaceuticals during these processes. Our approach can inform and advance the implementation of urine resource recovery. Check out the paper in ACS ES&T Engineering!

CDP granules

We are excited to share the third first-author paper from Casey’s PhD, “Evaluating the Performance of Novel Cyclodextrin Polymer Granules to Remove Perfluoroalkyl Acids (PFAAs) from Water.”

In this work, we evaluated the performance of cyclodextrin polymers (CDPs) following processing to generate CDP granules of varying particle size. This work is an important step forward in understanding the performance of novel CDPs in a morphology that is compatible with many types of widely implemented adsorption processes. Congratulations, Casey!

Another great collaboration with the Dichtel lab at Northwestern!

Summer of Conferences

Summer 2022 is winding down, but the HRG had a great time meeting with old friends and colleagues at conferences all summer long!

  • Damian, Paige, and Stephanie were thrilled to see Michael Zumstein again at the GRC: Water!
  • Damian and Ri had the opportunity to catch up at the AEESP conference in St. Louis!
  • Damian and Nayantara learned a TON at the PFAS workshop in Long Beach!
  • And Paige knocked it out of the park with another oral presentation at ACS Chicago!

TECHCON 2022 in Austin, TX and the RemTEC Summit on Emerging Contaminants in Westminster CO are on deck for the Fall! Hope to see some of you there!
