Harmful algal blooms (HABs) in lakes, rivers, and oceans are an increasingly severe problem worldwide. HABs can produce toxins that harm humans, kill fish, smother aquatic life, and destroy tourist economies. In this case study, see how a team led by AECOM developed a patent-pending hydronucleation flotation technology (HFT) process to safely remove the algae, designed and automated algae harvesters using Opto 22 groov EPICs, and are using the resulting biomass.
