U Connecticut Developing Green Tech To Clean Up Environment
- By Dian Schaffhauser
The University of Connecticut and VeruTEK Technologies are teaming up to research and develop green chemistry solutions for eliminating the toxic effects of chemical waste in the environment.
VeruTEK, which develops green technologies to clean up the environment, has an option to license any resulting solutions or technology from the project, which will research environmental catalysis and photocatalysis of pollutants.
"We at the Department of Chemistry in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Connecticut are thrilled to be collaborating with Dr. George Hoag and his team at VeruTEK ... in the development of new green chemistry solutions to clean the environment," said department head Steven Suib. "Researchers at VeruTEK are leaders in the field of environmental research and are dedicated to development of functional green technologies. VeruTEK's ongoing projects and products are well thought out, operational, and exciting."
