Environmental Nanotechnology focuses on application related to environmental remediation. Applications include air disinfection, inactivation of pathogens on surfaces and biological media. We also develop a technology that uses atmospheric water to inactivate airborne bacteria, one of the safest ways to eliminate bacteria.
