The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency just handed out suitcases full of cash to nanotech companies that think they can do something about all this mess we've created over the centuries. Here's the list:
- Nanoadsorbent and Microwave Technology To Capture and Recover Organic Vapors, $69,953, ADS Technologies Inc.
- Magnetite Nanoparticles for Enhanced Environmental Remediation, $69,939, Luna Innovations Inc. (good job, Jonathan)
- A Nanocrystal Biosensor Array for Simultaneous Detection of Multiple Waterborne Pathogens, $70,000 (why do some get a nice round number?) Nanomaterials & Nanofabrication Laboratories
- Solvent-Free Production of Alkaline Earth Metal Titanates for Electronics Applications, $70,000, NanoScale Materials, Inc.
- Engineered Magnetic Nanoparticles for Advanced Biosensor Signal Processing and Detection of Waterborne Pathogens, $70,000, nGimat Co.
- Chromate-Free Nanoparticle Corrosion Inhibitors for Steel, $70,000, TDA Research Inc.
