Onur Apul / Weston Roundtable (Sept. 14, 2023)
Science fiction fans of the 20th century may be disappointed that flying cars did not replace automobiles and talking robots are not our butlers. But we are so immersed in extremely sophisticated technologies in our lives that we can barely catch up. However, when it comes to securing our access to safe drinking water, the technologies, and materials we rely on are outdated and inefficient. In this presentation, Apul will focus on recent technological advances for water treatment industry, which aspire to contribute to efficient, safe, and sustainable water treatment.
The Weston Roundtable is made possible by a generous donation from Roy F. Weston, a highly accomplished UW-Madison alumnus. Designed to promote a robust understanding of sustainability science, engineering, and policy, these interactive lectures are co-sponsored by the Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment (SAGE), the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and the Office of Sustainability.
