Abstract
The proposed sorbents will have potential applications in i) industrial wastewater treatment plants, ii) municipal wastewater treatment plants, iii) nuclear waste treatment plants, iv) drinking water treatment plants, v) several types of existing point-of-use and point-of-entry water purifying systems, and vi) for remediation of various mercury contaminated sites using permeable reactive barrier (PRB) methodology and barriers for municipal and other waste landfills. The total potential annual domestic and foreign market estimate for the sorbents developed during this project will be about 21,500 tons corresponding to tens of millions of dollars in annual revenue. Lynntech will establish collaboration with an industrial partner to develop and test methods for the economical production of the proposed sorbent on industrial-scale during Phase II ultimately leading to Phase III development and commercialization of the technology.
