New Research Project Announcement

Dec 24, 2018

Apul Lab was awarded UMass Acorn Technology Transfer Funds to support the project titles: "Readily Deployable Cartridge for Lead Removal from Water Distribution Pipelines". Our research team is going to investigate composite electrospun fibers enabled with nano-scale carbon-based adsorbents.

New Publication - Removal Of Poly- And Per-Fluoroalkyl Substances From Aqueous Systems By Nano-Enabled Water Treatment Technologies

Dec 12, 2018

Apul lab published a frontier review article on nano-enabled technologies for removal of perfluorinated chemicals from aquatic environments. Arsalan Khalid collaborated with researchers from University of Texas at Austin, Washington State University, University of Nevada Reno, and Exponent. Congratulations to all!

2018 Faculty Symposium - Faculty Recognition

Nov 7, 2018

Onur Apul gave a flash talk in 2018 Faculty Symposium titled: "nano-innovations in drinking water treatment". Apul Lab was recognized in two categories: "Most Published Faculty Member in Francis College of Engineering" and "Commercialization and New Ventures".

2018 - New England Graduate Student Water Symposium

Sep 9, 2018

Ritchie LaFaille -Civil and Environmental Engineering undergraduate student and researcher- represented Apul group in New England Graduate Student Water Symposium. His poster presentation was about activated sludge pretreatment using nanomaterial augmented microwave irradiation. His long term vision is using this technology in wastewater treatment plants to maximize biogas production. His work is supported by Lowell Wastewater Utility and Massachusetts Clean Energy Center. Congratulations Ritchie!

American Chemical Society 2018 Boston National Meeting & Exposition

Aug 27, 2018

Arsalan Khalid successfully presented his work at American Chemical Society (ACS) Meeting in Boston in the Advances in Carbon Nanomaterial Design & Applications for Environmental Sustainability Session. His work is revealing adsorption mechanism of THC by three types of carbon-based adsorbents. Congratulations to Arsalan. Apul group also co-authored two presentations in the meeting: Implications of Nano-Bubbles in Water Treatment presented by Dr. Ariel Atkinson and Removal of Bromide by Silver-Impregnated Graphene-Oxide presented by Ana Barios from Arizona State University.
