ADVANCED REDUCTION PROCESSES: NANO-ENABLED MATERIALS FOR WATER TREATMENT
We are investigating nano-enabled heterogeneous, photo-, and electro- catalytic technologies for treating halogenated and oxygenated contaminants in water.
FATE AND TRANSPORT OF NANOPARTICLES
Engineered nanomaterials (ENM) are becoming commonplace in consumer products and they will be released into the environment at some point in their life cycle. Understanding the transport behavior is essential to determining ENM risk to the environmental and human health.
ELECTROCHEMICAL TREATMENT OF URINE
High nitrogen inputs from urine increases wastewater costs and effluent nitrogen loads. We are employing nano-structured electrodes to treat urine while providing an alternative source of hydrogen energy.
