Department Statement NEWT is a National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center (ERC) comprised of four academic institutions (Arizona State University, Rice University, University of Texas El Paso, and Yale University). Over a 10-year period, the ERC will conduct research in four different areas Multifunctional Nanomaterials for Removing Priority Pollutants, Low Energy Desalination, Scaling and Fouling Control and Safety & Sustainability. NEWTs vision is to enable access to suitable water almost anywhere in the world by developing next-generation, easy-to-deploy water treatment systems enabled by nanotechnology. Research teams within the center are developing high-performance materials and treatment systems with interchangeable modules that are highly efficient in targeting priority pollutants while offering flexibility needed to tap unconventional water sources and respond to changes in source water characteristics or treatment objectives. Our initial focus is on two markets in need of significant technological innovation: (1) point-of-use, point-of-entry drinking water treatment, and (2) industrial wastewater treatment and reuse, with a particular focus on water-intensive operations such as those present on oil and gas production sites. The Joint Research Program (JRP) is a cooperative effort between SRP and the University. The purpose of the program is to pursue research and development projects, provide research results to electric utilities and to the public, and provide training for undergraduate and graduate engineering students at the University. Since funds are limited, only those projects that meet most of the objectives are likely to be supported.
