Researchers look to deliver water (and energy) in ways both old and new
Posted: February 22, 2012
As one engineer helps deliver clean drinking water with 2,000-year-old technology, another works on the chemistry's cutting edge on breakthroughs for both potable water and clean energy. Chad Jafvert, professor of civil engineering, stepped outside his normal zone of research to collaborate with students in the Global Engineering Program (GEP). The group’s semester project resulted in a real-world solution and better drinking water for schoolchildren in rural Colombia.
