Ceramic clean sweep

Researchers at the University of Surrey are looking at ways in which water can be cleaned and recycled in an energy efficient manner.

Researchers at the University of Surrey are looking at ways in which water can be cleaned and recycled in an energy efficient manner during washing of functional ceramics, addressing the significant issue of the large quantities of waste water produced as a result of processing.

Using vapour phase transport of water molecules across nanofilters, the researchers are extracting water using low pressure airflow and without the need for thermal evaporation.
