Scientists 3D print WHO-standard solar-powered water purification devices

Published May 13, 2021


3Dprintingindustry reported on advances in the field, including the development of a 3D printed water-purifying aerogel that could be scaled-up for use at large wastewater treatment plants by  a team led by Nirupam Aich, assistant professor in the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering.

“The goal is to safely remove contaminants from water without releasing any problematic chemical residue,” says Aich.

Associate professor Chi Zhou of the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering was a co-author of the study.
