Prof. Peng Wang's research is at the forefront of solar-evaporation water production technology. It involves solar-energy driven fresh-water generation using environmental nanotechnology, solar desalination, zero liquid discharge desalination, and atmospheric water harvesting. These works include a prototype and fully solar-driven, all-in-one “self-healing” solar distillation device; a solar evaporator to achieve zero-liquid-discharge desalination with high energy efficiency via solar distillation; a photovoltaics-membrane distillation device with unprecedented electricity generation performance that shifts electricity production from the ‘water consumer’ side to the ‘water producer’ side, and a new nano vapor sorbent that successfully provides continuous atmospheric water generation.


Congratulations!
