The Environmental Protection Agency has awarded a grant to a group of ETSU students for an environmental research project.
The $15,000 EPA grant will go toward their project to “develop porous adsorbents to clean water contaminated by perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctansulfonic acid (PFOS).”
The students will attend the TechConnect World Innovation Conference and Expo in Boston this June where they will showcase their research.
Afterward, the group can apply for a second grant for up to $100,000 to further their research.
Grants were also awarded to student teams at the University of Alabama and the University of Central Florida.
