AxNano was among 30 teams showcasing their cutting-edge technology at the Sensor and Technologies Fair, at EHS FEST, the 4-day 50th anniversary National Institute for environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) celebration that took place in Durham from Dec. 5th - 8th. More than 1200 researchers, trainees, young investigators, community partners, stakeholders and NIEHS leaders came together from across the US to talk about the future of environmental health science. The NIEHS is headquartered in Research Triangle Park, NC.
Axnano, Triad Growth Partners technology development group, is currently working with the NIEHS’s Superfund Research Program (SRP) to develop, commercialize and scale-up its patented RemRx-CRP technology which was invented at NC A&T State University. Using a versatile, controlled release biodegradable polymer structure (CRPS) technology, RemRx-CRP is a breakthrough in sustainable water remediation because it is safer, easier and less costly to deploy to treat contaminated groundwater.
When we think about hazardous waste, the EPA is usually the first agency that comes to mind, but the NIEHS and its Superfund Research Program are part of the National Institutes of Health. Superfund Research Program provides practical, scientific solutions to protect health, the environment, and communities. It funds grants on basic biological, environmental, and engineering processes, to find real solutions to hazardous waste problems.
