American Marine University Research Institute, Inc. (AMURI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing clean, safe, and usable water globally.
The objectives of this project are to develop for commercial use, ozone (and other gases) impregnated with nano bubble technology (NBOT) to address a number of water safety and security issues including: algae mitigation / remediation; toxin identification / degradation / elimination; elimination of water contaminants, herbicides, pesticides, etc. and overall water sterilization.
As part of this research project, the NOAA/HML PI and the Collaborator scientists and lab technicians will conduct experiments to assess the efficacy of NBOT in both microbial mitigation (sterilization) as well as toxin and other chemical contaminant degradation. The research will require the identification of unknown bioactive compounds (natural products chemistry) for assessment, analysis and testing of the NBOT algae and toxin mitigation technology.
