New method could use less energy to turn seawater into drinking water

A Mizzou researcher is working on a more energy efficient way to transform seawater into fresh drinking water. There are quintillions of gallons of water in the world’s oceans, but, as the Ancient Mariner lamented in 1798, not a drop to drink. And current processes to extract salt from seawater are expensive and energy intensive. [...]

Designing new ways to understand material

Individual electrode components used to measure mass and thickness of a material during electrochemical operation. A Mizzou Engineer has designed two techniques for understanding the behavior of materials. In one report, Matthias Young has developed a new way to measure mass and thickness of a material during electrochemical operation. And in a second report, he [...]
