Oak Ridge National Laboratory Innovation Crossroads program has selected was Dr. S. Bianca Bailey, founder of EnterpriseWorks startup, Agriwater Corporation, for its next cohort of science and technology innovators advancing technologies they aim to commercialize.
As a part of the ORNL cohort, she will work with ORNL experts, gain access to the facility’s unique assets (including the world’s fastest supercomputer), and join a mentoring network to develop business strategies.
The latest group of Innovation Crossroads scientific entrepreneurs is the first to be onboarded in person and on campus since 2020. Each startup is focused on clean energy technologies. The fellows were chosen in a competitive merit-based process with applicants from across the country.
Bailey has developed an electro coagulator, a device that purifies livestock wastewater for agricultural use. This system helps reduce expensive farmer discharge fines, produces clean water for multiple uses, and assists in preventing pollution.
Congratulations to Dr. Bailey on this honor. Learn more about the program here.
