Developing tech to eliminate ‘forever chemicals’ from water

Funding from DOE’s National Alliance for Water Innovation supports UIC research

03-Aug-2022

Engineers at the University of Illinois Chicago have been awarded just over $1 million from the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Alliance for Water Innovation to build a system that selectively removes and destroys poly- and perfluorinated substances, commonly called PFAS and referred to as ...

Scientists develop environmentally safe, frost-resistant coatings

A longer-lasting alternative to conventional deicers

05-Apr-2022

Airports are busy, especially during the winter. As passengers wait to board, delays get longer when airplanes need to be dowsed with thousands of gallons of deicing fluids that help them fight the frigid winter. But as soon as the plane takes off, most of the liquid is gone from the surface of ...

Scavenger nanoparticles could make fuel cell-powered vehicles a reality

New material prevents inexpensive catalysts from degrading

04-Apr-2022

Engineers at the University of Illinois Chicago are among a collaborative team that has developed a material that could give fuel cell systems a competitive edge over the battery systems that currently power most electric vehicles. In contrast to lithium batteries, fuel cell technology relies on ...

Revolutionizing carbon capture technology

Stackable artificial leaf uses less power than lightbulb to capture 100 times more carbon than other systems

31-Jan-2022

Engineers at the University of Illinois Chicago have built a cost-effective artificial leaf that can capture carbon dioxide at rates 100 times better than current systems. Unlike other carbon capture systems, which work in labs with pure carbon dioxide from pressurized tanks, this artificial leaf ...

Materials could delay frost up to 300 times longer than existing anti-icing coatings

26-Mar-2019

Most techniques to prevent frost and ice formation on surfaces rely heavily on heating or liquid chemicals that need to be repeatedly reapplied because they easily wash away. Even advanced anti-icing materials have problems functioning under conditions of high humidity and subzero conditions, ...
