Water Desalination Using Low-Grade Heat
As a part of a $2M award from US Department of Energy, Solar Energy Technologies Office, a novel humidification-dehumidification (HDH) desalination technology protected under US Patent Application US62882953 is being developed.
Treatment of Fracking Wastewater Using Low-Grade Heat
The FRESH-Frac design uses selective distillation to condense clean water from waste vapor while the vast majority of contaminants remain in the gas phase.
