Two Professors from Ohio University in Athens have come up with a way to transform water polluted with toxic acid mine drainage (AMD) into small tubes of beautiful artist paints.

Now, Environmental Engineering Professor, Dr. Guy Riefler, and Art Professor, John Sabraw, have their sights set on an even more ambitious goal; major water reclamation projects funded through large-scale adoption of their innovative tech breakthrough.
