03/30/2004 HydroGlobe licenses new arsenic-removal technology to Dow Chemical

HOBOKEN, N.J. - A Technogenesis® Company grown at Stevens Institute of Technology, HydroGlobe Inc, has licensed to Dow Chemical Company a patent-pending technology that effectively removes arsenic III and V from drinking water. Pioneered by Stevens researchers Dr. George P. Korfiatis and Dr. Xiaoguang Meng, the innovative technology will be developed by Dow to create new adsorptive media for cost-effective removal of arsenic and heavy metals from drinking water.

"This technology is the most effective available today for removal of both arsenic and heavy metals from drinking water," said John Schroeder, CEO of HydroGlobe. "We are pleased to be working with Dow to bring the technology to the marketplace."

The titanium-based adsorbent will increase the efficiency of point-of-use and point-of-entry water treatment applications, and will provide value to municipalities who need a safe, cost-effective way to meet the new EPA arsenic standard of 10 ppb that takes effect in 2006. The New Jersey State DEP is also considering the imposition an arsenic standard of less than 10 ppb, which HydroGlobe's technology has been demonstrated to meet.

"Arsenic removal is a high priority issue in today's water treatment marketplace," said Ian Barbour, general manager, Dow Liquid Separations. "This new technology will enable us to make great strides in delivering the highest quality water at the lowest cost, while meeting government regulations."

Technogenesis is Stevens' unique environment for education and research, in which students, faculty, and partners in academia, government and industry jointly nurture new technologies and companies from laboratory innovation to marketplace implementation.
