The Project

There are currently 3 million contaminated sites globally, costing an annual $36 Billion+ to remediate. The optimization of cleanup operations for these sites has become a technical challenge worldwide. Recognizing the need for increasing the efficiency of site sampling practices, ChromoSense has developed a proprietary in-situ sensor protection device that enabling long-term remote monitoring of contaminated sites, saving cost and energy.

The team has a fully executed license agreement between ChromoSense and NYU. The team is the process of applying for an NSF SBIR grant as well as pursuing piloting opportunities and grants with the USGS.
