We launched a project related to harmful algal bloom mitigation. See details: https://experiment.com/projects/development-of-reactive-nanobubble-technology-for-efficient-and-scalable-algae-and-cyanotoxin-removal

The research is titled Development of Reactive Nanobubble Technology for Efficient and Scalable Algae and Cyanotoxin Removal. 

​This research will advance algal biomass separation or removal from water for algae-based biofuel industrialization and mitigation of wide algal blooms’ impacts on water quality and drinking water security. Briefly, our research will develop and implement an innovative process using reactive nanobubbles that are made of gases such as pure oxygen or ozone that promote rapid oxidation and decomposition of algal biomass and aqueous organic matters (e.g., cyanotoxin).
