Osmotic Power Development and Membrane Distillation



Our group works to develop characterized hollow fiber membranes for direct contact membrane distillation. Direct Contact Membrane Distillation is the movement of water vapor across a porous hydrophobic surface for water purification. The group is lead under the direction of Dr. Frank Huang in the Enviromental Engineering Department.
