Where water filters meet computer modeling: Developing molecular simulations to improve in-home filtration systems

UNC SRP’s Project 5 is focused on identifying ways membrane systems can be better designed and implemented to improve arsenic removal and disposal methods. “Clarifying the fundamental mechanisms required for a membrane to separate arsenic from water is integral to designing new membranes that improve membrane treatment outcomes,” according to Orlando Coronell, PhD, Project 5...
