The UK SRC is currently working with Dr. Bhattacharyya to transfer the results of our remediation research to industry. So far, Dr. Bhattacharyya's research has generated 5 patents and resulted in a license agreement with Nanostone - a major membrane manufacturer. This technology is current being investigated for application to the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant Superfund site and for industrial applications through relationships with the Southern Company and Chevron.
The UK SRC is also working with DOE and the environmental site manager at the Paducah Plant (FLUOR) to secure media from the site for use in both of our environmental science projects.
The UK SRC has worked closely with the Training Core in developing a two day communication workshop, that better prepares our trainees in effective research translation.
