Water Sustainability through Nanotechnology: A Federal Perspective
Wednesday, October 19, 2016 12:00:00 PM PDT - 2:00:00 PM PDT
Water demand in the United States is projected to increase over the next several decades, possibly rising by as much as 34% between 2005 and 2060. In addition to this increased demand, many of the Nation’s aquifers are being depleted at unsustainable rates, which may lead to increased challenges in locating usable water sources in the future.
In this webinar, panelists Qilin Li (Rice University), Isabel Escobar (University of Kentucky), and David Mazyck (University of Florida) will describe current technologies and future opportunities related to water treatment and purification. The speakers will address filtration and membrane separation systems, catalysis, and alternatives to reverse osmosis in technical detail.
Webinar viewers will be able to submit questions for the panelists to answer during the Q&A period. Submitted questions will be considered in the order received and may be posted on the NNI website. A moderator will identify relevant questions and pose them to the speakers. Due to time constraints, some questions may be grouped and some may not be addressed during the webinar.
