Microvi to Present Technology at American Chemical Society National Meeting

EDA Innovation Awards

April 3, 2017 – Microvi will make a presentation Tuesday at the American Chemical Society’s National Meeting & Exposition about the company’s groundbreaking dioxane removal technology.

The talk, entitled “Bioprocess development for 1,4-dioxane treatment: Bench through field investigation,” will be delivered by Microvi’s Director of Innovation Research Ameen Razavi. It explores the challenges of dioxane remediation, and how Microvi’s MB-DX technology provides a novel, cost-effective solution for its treatment.

Microvi’s MB-DX technology was supported by a grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).

Dioxane is classified as a carcinogen and various state, federal and international authorities have set regulatory limits ranging from 1-70 μg/L. It has been used around the world for decades in solvents, pesticides, resins, oils, adhesives and waxes. It remains recalcitrant for years and spreads rapidly through groundwater, causing a significant public health risk.

The American Chemical Society’s National Meeting & Exposition is being held April 2-6 in San Francisco. Microvi’s presentation will be held Tuesday, April 4 at 3:50 pm at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis, 780 Mission St.
