We are working on the EPA grant 02D48123 “Demonstrating the Nutrient Removal in Urban-dominated Watersheds using Floating Macrophytes” (PI. Dr. Balan, Co-PI, Drs. Zhu and Shan) through collaboration with PVAMU (Drs. Ray and Neelgund) and ODU (Dr. Kumar) in March 2023. In this $1.5M grant, we will demonstrate the use of floating water plants to remove nutrients from watersheds and convert them into useful products such as biochar.
