2015 AAEES Summit at Loyola Marymount University

Attaining a Sustainable Wet Infrastructure for Southern California

The American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists has assembled the leadership of the largest public water agencies in the Southern California area for a one-day Summit being held at Loyola Marymount University on October 22, 2015. The session is designed to provide perspective and insight on the issues they are facing in meeting current and future demands on their water infrastructure.

This one-of-a-kind event will enable attendees to learn about the strategies that these agencies are employing in addressing the challenges and opportunities that the current drought is imposing on Southern California's water supply. More importantly, the speakers will also focus on the options available for defining a 'new normal', and what that means for planning, designing, and building a water infrastructure that will accommodate an evolving reality.

Crowd Computing to Improve Water Filtration

The research was conducted by 150,000 volunteers

Date: July 6, 2015

Summary: Scientists propose a novel nanotechnology-based strategy to improve water filtration. The project was an experiment in crowdsourced computing -- carried out by over 150,000 volunteers who contributed their own computing power to the research.

Nearly 800 million people worldwide don't have access to safe drinking water, and some 2.5 billion people live in precariously unsanitary conditions, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Together, unsafe drinking water and the inadequate supply of water for hygiene purposes contribute to almost 90% of all deaths from diarrheal diseases -- and effective water sanitation interventions are still challenging scientists and engineers.

A new study published in Nature Nanotechnology proposes a novel nanotechnology-based strategy to improve water filtration. The research project involves the minute vibrations of carbon nanotubes called "phonons," which greatly enhance the diffusion of water through sanitation filters. The project was the joint effort of a Tsinghua University-Tel Aviv University research team and was led by Prof. Quanshui Zheng of the Tsinghua Center for Nano and Micro Mechanics and Prof. Michael Urbakh of the TAU School of Chemistry, both of the TAU-Tsinghua XIN Center, in collaboration with Prof. Francois Grey of the University of Geneva.

Shake, Rattle, and Roll

"We've discovered that very small vibrations help materials, whether wet or dry, slide more smoothly past each other," said Prof. Urbakh. "Through phonon oscillations -- vibrations of ...click here to continue.
