In-reservoir destruction of Blue-Green Algae and their toxins

In-reservoir destruction of Blue-Green Algae and their toxins

Dr Christine Edwards (Biotechnologist - RGU) along with Professor Lawton have led the field in the production and detection of cyanotoxins and will collaborate with leading scientists in Brazil where reservoirs are currently extremely depleted and suffering from significant blue-green algal blooms. On completion of this research we will launch a fully scalable in-reservoir water treatment system.
