At the NEWT Engineering Research Center, we use nanotechnology to develop water treatment systems
Our goal is to protect human lives and support sustainable economic development with our technology.
Our hope is that these systems can tap unconventional sources to provide water for humanitarian needs and emergency response.
We’re an interdisciplinary nanosystems engineering research center.
Our headquarters are at Rice University, but our center includes Arizona State University, University of Texas at El Paso and Yale University.
