Chemistry professor Ziling (Ben) Xue’s “Simple Optical Sensor for Biodiesel Contaminant in Jet Fuel” is being featured at Spark!2015. Xue will be presenting his technology on March 25 in the 1-6pm symposium held in Tech 2020 Atrium on 1020 Commerce Park Drive, Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
Spark! is a half-day symposium providing new technologies available for licensing developed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Tennessee. Business leaders, entrepreneurs, and regional stakeholders are invited to learn more about these new technologies, explore commercial opportunities, and provide feedback. Xue’s research mainly looks at methods for detection of biodiesel contaminants in jet fuel that are not only rapid, sensitive but also economical and can be mass-produced.
