Talk Description

The overall project that I got to help work on aimed to use hydrogel beads to bioremediate water. The small hydrogel beads contained immobilized bacteria cells. When contaminated groundwater diffused through them, these bacteria could break down contaminants in water. The part of the project that I worked on focused on producing a large amount of uniform hydrogel beads. We worked on making the bead production setup more efficient.
