Project Number # 4101-13
Project Leader: Elissa O'Malley
This project will assess the environmental risk of engineered nanomaterial titanium dioxide (TiO2) towards a sensitive aquatic organism in treated wastewater. Investigation into the interaction of nanomaterial TiO2 with wastewater derived organic matter and micropollutants will be conducted to understand its effect on nano TiO2 toxicity.
Supervisors: Prof Beate Escher and Dr Peta Neale [Entox, University of Queensland]
Elissa has submitted her thesis and awaiting examiners comments.
