Research Helps Bacteria Clean Our Water Sources

Environmental Science Water Research & Technology

MnDRIVE sponsored research from civil, environmental, and geo- engineering Professors Paige Novak (BTI) and Bill Arnold and post doctoral researcher David Tan (BTI) is featured on the cover of a prominent environmental journal. These researchers are studying how to transform one of the major sources of pollution from artificial hormones. Their research demonstrates evidence of ways to improve the selection and activity of bacteria that can degrade estrone in water sources.
