Dr. Zhang’s research group recently received the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA)’s People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) Program Phase 2 Award to support the research of Reactive Nanobubble Systems for Efficient and Scalable Harmful Algae and Cyanotoxin Removal

This project aims to develop and implement an innovative green process using reactive nanobubbles (NBs) that promote rapid oxidation and decomposition of organic water pollutants and algal biomass. This new process holds potential to be implemented for water disinfection and pollutant removal, and water remediation. Especially, the project leads to integrated and scalable engineered processes of reactive NBs to tackle several pressing micropollution challenges caused by HABs and cyanotoxins in impaired water bodies. The results will not only provide fundamental guidelines as to the rational design of reactive NBs, but also leads to an avenue for the transformative and sustainable applications in many fields of water treatment and purification.
