NTAE: Pollution Prevention and Wastewater Phytoremediation Feature Story

Publication Description

Delaware State University is piloting the Algal Turf Raceway System (ATS), a green technology that reduces carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus pollution in water that farmers use from bays, lakes, reservoirs, and streams. This publication gives an overview of how the Extension team used NTAE grant support to run the pilot and what it hopes to prove with this technology.

The publication is excerpted from the New Technologies for Ag Extension 2022-2023 Yearbook, which documents dozens of projects funded through the New Technologies for Ag Extension (NTAE) program. NTAE is a cooperative agreement between USDA NIFA, Oklahoma State University, and the Extension Foundation. The goal of the New Technologies for Ag Extension (NTAE) grant is to incubate, accelerate, and expand promising work that will increase the impact of the Cooperative Extension System (CES) in the communities it serves, and provide models that can be adopted or adapted by Extension teams across the nation.
