ITRI/Rosenfeld Fellowship Candidate seminar #1- Technology Invention: Aiming for a Breakthrough in Brackish Water Desalination with CDI

Date: 
February 18, 2014 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Location:

Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

Sustainable energy and clean water are major global challenges. Solving these challenges crucially depends on the development of novel, robust materials-based technologies. This seminar will present work addressing two energy-related materials challenges: (i) decreased efficiency in Proton Exchange Membrane fuel cells from degradation of carbon catalyst supports and (ii) search for F-free high redox potential Fe2+/Fe3+ electrode materials for Li-ion batteries. The seminar then presents proposed research on design of electrode materials for capacitive deionization. CDI is a potentially scalable and affordable desalination technology to address potable water shortages and increased salinization of fresh water sources in rural areas.
