AFE 2021: Using Nanotechnology in Oil and Metal Remediation
February 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Nanotechnology uses materials between 1 and 100 nm in size, which have novel properties. This presentation reports the development and use of a nanotechnology platform for the safe and efficient removal of oil and metal from the environment. The relevant fundamentals of nanotechnology will be discussed, the challenges of using it in complex media such as soils and waters, and its advantages and limitations. Issues such as synthesis, removal mechanisms and controlling risk are presented.
Presented by Dr. Jamie Lead, University of South Carolina
