Oct. 2022: Enhanced Microcystis Aeruginosa removal and novel flocculation mechanisms using a novel continuous co-coagulation flotation (CCF)

On June 19-24, 2022, the 3rd GRC on Nanotechnology for Agriculture and Food Systems was held at Southern New Hampshire University which focused on the convergence of nanotechnology with food and agriculture. A community of scientists from around the globe, representing academia, industry, government, and NGOs assembled to present and discuss cutting edge, unpublished research with other experts in the field. In appreciation of the multi-disciplinary nature of this growing field, the program included a comprehensive vision of critical and emerging research areas. This conference encompassed nanotechnology research advances across the field of agricultural science, inclusive of food science, plants / soil, animal science, human health and disease, and addressed safe deployment of nanotechnology in these areas with a view to public perception and policy. Dr. Zhang’s group member, Shan Xue, delivered a poster on Use of Novel Nanobubble Watering Processes for Enhanced Plant Growth (AFRI project [2018-07549]). Some of the research results have been published.
