Water treatment to eliminate cyanobacteria and other toxins by unmanned surface vehicles (USVs)
TS-058408 — Freshwater resources around the world are under stress due to naturally occurring events and human impacts, causing an increase in cyanobacteria blooms. These cyanobacteria release harmful toxins, known as cyanotoxins. The proposed USV degrades the toxins on-site with UV light, reducing the accumulation of toxins, preventing groundwater contamination, and improving water quality.
Treatment of cyanobacteria and cyanotoxins is necessary before they reach a critical point, or they can contaminate other environments. For example, waste produced by water treatment facilities serves as fertilizer for agricultural land, and if not properly treated, toxic cyanobacteria can grow in…

Porous inorganic-organic material for removal of trace carbon dioxide from air or other gas streams
TS-041747 — Adsorbent for carbon dioxide capture with low energy input for regeneration, and high adsorption capacity
46% of 2010 global greenhouse gas emissions came from electricity and heat production, or from fossil fuels burned for industrial use (EPA). A lot of effort has been put into research on CO2 capture by adsorbents or absorbents, in order to reduce these greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, effec…
