Texas A&M Licenses Water Technology

October 28, 2013 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 91, ISSUE 43

Texas A&M University’s AgriLife Research arm has licensed a chemical-based water treatment technique to Siemens Water Technologies. Developed by Texas A&M professor Yongheng Huang, the technology can remove selenium, mercury, zinc, copper, and chromium more efficiently and at lower cost than current treatment systems, the partners say. Called Activated Iron Process, the technology transfers electrons from elemental iron to electron-conducting iron rusts, facilitating chemical reactions that mineralize water contaminants. The partners say they will continue to develop the process.
