#FutureTech - Rice University System Selectively Sequesters Toxins from Water

Rice University scientists are developing technology to remove contaminants from water – but only as many as necessary.

The Rice lab of engineer Qilin Li is building a treatment system that can be tuned to selectively pull toxins from drinking water and wastewater from factories, sewage systems and oil and gas wells. The researchers said their technology will cut costs and save energy compared to conventional systems.

Read how the treatment system works here.
