Innovation Description

This project will develop a scalable energy-efficient water purification method based on ion concentration polarization at the interface between micro scale channels and planar nanoporous membranes.
How does your innovation work?
Access to clean water is a key determinant of public health and current purification methods are energy intensive and thus impractical for low income regions. This project will develop a scalable energy-efficient water purification method based on ion concentration polarization at the interface between micro scale channels and planar nanoporous membranes.
