Trace Organics in Recycled Water: Analysis of Plant Uptake and Processing

Western water utilities are looking to water re-use as a sustainable solution to meet future needs. In California, municipal wastewater is treated to a high enough degree that it can be returned to the water supply for a variety of beneficial uses (1) including landscape irrigation (2-4), agriculture (5,6), ecosystem enhancement (7), industrial cooling and processing (3, 8), ground water recharge, and indirect potable reuse (8-10).

Smart chemical design: Integrating functional performance with environmental fate and toxicity

As rapid technological innovations continue to require the development of high-performance chemicals, we envision implementing a more interdisciplinary and precautionary approach in developing new chemical products by invoking smart chemical design to avoid the unwanted chemical properties of long-term environmental persistence, bioaccumulation and toxicity. We will develop chemical design criteria for a class of perfluoropolyether surfactant compounds, widely used for surface coatings, polymers and lubricants.
