Bridging the Gap Between Large and Small: Thermofluids and Nanoengineering for the Water-Energy Nexus
05 Nov 2019 | | Contributor(s):: David M. Warsinger
Nanomaterial self-assembly techniques can be guided by thermofluids designs to make macro-scale membrane systems with photonic properties for catalysis and solar distillation.
Nanosilver and DBPs
01 Feb 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Christina Crawford, Taylor Miller
Chlorine is a common chemical used to disinfect water. The addition of chlorine provides a benefit by killing pathogenic organisms, but it can be also harmful to humans by producing Disinfectant ByProducts (DBP). In this video, middle school and high school student will learn how...
Water From Urine
30 Jan 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Christina Crawford, Krystal Dunn
The average person on Earth uses about 80 gallons of water per day, however, in space astronauts only use about 3 gallons of water per day. Because water is a limited resource in space, NEWT scientists are working on a solution to recycle water from urine using nanotechnology. ...
Can We Save Lives with Thermodynamics? Nanoengineering and Thermofluids for the Water-Food-Energy Nexus
27 Apr 2017 | | Contributor(s):: David M. Warsinger
Climate change, degrading water resources, and economic and population growth are increasing the need for new science and technologies at the Water-Energy-Food Nexus. In enabling new and improved technologies to tackle these issues, new nanomaterials designed with systems-level thermodynamics...
Is there a simulator for nanotechnology that cleans polluted water?
