Abstract

The objective of this research is to investigate the feasibility of designing a controlled release polymer (CRP) system to reduce pathogen levels in water bodies. A research group at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University is investigating the ability to encapsulate a chemical oxidant (chemox) within biodegradable polymers to treat water contaminated by pathogens.
