September, 2017 1) New project funded by the US Bureau of Reclamation - Desalination and Water Purification Research Program in collaboration with Orange County Water District. This work is highly collaborative involving OCWD, Nevada, Colorado-Boulder, and San Diego State, and stems from preliminary work MS student Andrew Poustie conducted looking at disinfection by-products during water reclamation for potable reuse.
2) New paper out in Environmental Science: Nano "Methodology for Quantifying Engineered Nanomaterial Release from Divers Product Matrices under Outdoor Weathering Conditions and Implications for Life Cycle Assessment" http://dx.doi.org/10.1039/C7EN00410A
June, 2017 1) Hanigan had a paper published in the Journal of Environmental Science. It is a fun new take on in vitro vs in vivo platforms for comparative toxicity studies and was a collaboration with Oregon State's Sinnhuber Aquatic Research Lab. "Zebrafish Embryo Toxicity of 15 Chlorinated, Brominated, and Iodinated Disinfection By-products" https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jes.2017.05.008
2) Our research group has been awarded an internal UNR grant to look at CO2 capture from wastewater. Looking forward to getting this rolling.
