Dr. Virender Sharma is a professor in environmental and occupational health, as well as a chemist and entrepreneur. With his interest in chemistry starting at a young age, Sharma has been dedicated to scientific research to help other people for a long time. In this episode, we explore Sharma’s research and development of oxidants and hydroxy radicals, how he took an initial confusing product of research and used it to help the environment, and his new technology, which takes “electron-hungry” molecules close to pollutants and it works to destroy the pollutant. More than that, Sharma’s technology can be used as a disinfectant, water purifier, wound treatment, and even as a golf course treatment.
Available technology: Activated Ferrate Solution as a Surface and Water Disinfectant and Oxidant
Links to some of Dr. Sharma's research:
