A Non-Chemical Method for Algal Bloom Treatment and Prevention
TS-059099 — SS+MEF technology to both prevent and treat algal bloom growth, as well as neutralize algal toxins.
The Need Climate change and human practices have led to an increased frequency and intensity of Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs). These HABs, particularly those dominated by cyanobacteria, produce harmful toxins, which result in serious health issues when ingested, inhaled, or contacted. The stability of…

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…
