Effective, High-Performance Water Purification Systems

Abstract:
Water is one of the most important resources for human existence, and ensuring access to cheap and clean sources is emerging as one of the great challenges of this century. While this problem is particularly acute in developing nations, even here in the United States increased revision of drinking water standards is pushing the envelope for current water treatment methods. This problem will only grow as the world’s population increases, and agriculture draws more and more of the potable water supply. Thus our systems engineering goal of cost-effective and high-performance water treatment systems meets an important social need for this country. Nanostructures can both offer substantial improvements to existing water purification paradigms, and introduce new ones, both of which CBEN exploits.
