We have developed a novel technology for the removal/recovery of heavy metal from aqueous and organic solvents. The patented technology is based on a low molecular weight protein known as metallothionein (MT). The protein has [...]
Reverse osmosis (RO) is one of the most widely employed technologies for water desalination. A drawback of this technology is high consumption of electricity by electric motors used for high-pressure water pumping. Energy consumption can [...]
In-situ generation of radicals in photocatalytic reactor with TiO2 nanotube plate Daewon Pak, Haemin Ku, Yongho Lee Graduate School of Energy and Environment, Seoul National University of Science and Technology, 232 Gongneungro, Nowon-gu, Seoul, Korea, [...]
Membranes are an important technology for industrial gas separation and seawater desalination and emerging applications such as CO2 capture. The key to the steady growth of membrane applications is high performance thin film composite (TFC) [...]
We live in a world where synthetic chemicals have become a part of our day-to-day life. As a result, some of these pollutants enter our water streams and food chain and interfere with the normal [...]

The processes integration does the treatment of wastewater polluted with pharmaceuticals a more efficient process. The adsorption of pollutants on different material, like carbon based or silica is one of the technologies more studied for [...]
The EPA estimates that one out of every four Americans lives within three miles of a hazardous waste site. Over 450,000 brownfield sites are awaiting remediation with 1,280 sites on the National Priorities List (NPL). [...]
Freshwater stress and scarcity is one of the most challenging emerging issues due to climate change, rapid population growth, urbanization, and improved standards of living. Desalination of seawater or impaired water, such as brackish water [...]
