Nanotechnology could ease the world’s water woes

Abstract:
When EPA advisory committee member Richard Sustich walked into his house on a stormy July morning, he was soaking wet. He had just checked to see how the lake near his home in Lake Zurich, Illinois, was holding up in the deluge.

He dried himself off and brewed a fresh cup of coffee before sitting down to discuss another of the projects he works on. A retired Water Reclamation District employee, Sustich already made a 30-year career out of addressing water issues, but he just can’t seem to stay away. Now he works towards finding ways to clean water using the tiniest technology available: nanotechnology.

(Ed.'s note: "Essentially micro-scale science and engineering" nope! Essentially nano-scale science and engineering.)
