Berkeley Arsenic Alleviation Group

The Berkeley Arsenic Alleviation Group aims to design a process that utilizes ARUBA, Arsenic Removal Using Bottom Ash, a material developed by scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab to effectively and affordably remove arsenic from groundwater in rural Bangladeshi communities. In addition, we are developing a business plan for the implementation of the proposed process. Our technology and business plan aim to benefit poor Bangladeshis in rural villages, while still realizing a profit for the business, as financial sustainability is the key to long-term success.

Team Members: Johanna Mathieu, Tasnuva Khan, Kosar Jahani, and Mehmet Seflek
