- Project Summary
Project Summary (1995-2000)The Technology Transfer and Outreach Core promotes communication among the residents of Akwesasne, the industries responsible for local pollution, and the governmental agencies responsible for ongoing remediation activities. Results of both biological and technology research are disseminated to these involved parties as soon as they have been presented before learned peers or published in peer reviewed journals. Major trials of clean-up technology by supercritical fluid extraction, photolysis, and anaerobic microbial PCB degradation are planned and information on these technologies is shared with local industries. The mission of this core is to try to gain the enthusiastic support of the Mohawk nation for these trials, so that other Native American nations continent-wide may benefit from them and also gain the support and collaboration of government and industries for which PCBs are a continuing problem.
