Absorbent Nanomaterial Cleans up Toxic Water
Added Nov 26, 2012 | Rate View top rated
"Osorb" is swellable, organically-modified silica, or glass, capable of absorbing oil and other contaminants from water. Osorb has become the principal product of a company in Wooster, OH called ABSMaterials. With support from the National Science Foundation, scientists at ABSMaterials are developing water remediation technologies for cities and industries - everything from storm water to agricultural runoff. ABSMaterials is creating formulas to address various contaminants, including hydrocarbons, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, herbicides, chlorinated solvents, and endocrine disruptors.
