All these areas of research work together towards our goal.
Open the NEWT Research Brochure in Adobe Acrobat to learn more about each research thrust and theme.
Thrust 1 seeks to understand and control nanoscale properties that selectively and efficiently remove unwanted components from water. For example, only eliminating toxic nitrate molecules from drinking water or removing and destroying perfluorinated compounds from industrial waste streams.
Thrust 2 aims to drastically reduce – and possibly eliminate – electric energy consumption for removing pollutants and salt from water.
We bring people across the world together to meet the challenges of this goal.
