Enabling Solar-Powered Water Purification Technology
Water scarcity caused by pollution in the wake of natural disasters or supply system damage is a severe threat to modern society and a challenge to emergency response/rescue agencies. We propose to develop an effective, user-friendly, point-of-use water purification technology that integrates our highly efficient hydrogel-based solar vapor generators to address these issues.
