Via Separations: Efficient chemical filtration

Shreya Dave ’09, SM ’12, PhD ’16, like Bajpayee and Govindan, focused on desalination for her doctoral thesis.Dave constructed a membrane that may facilitate desalination that is both more cost-effective and more effective under the direction of her advisor, professor of materials science and engineering Jeffrey Grossman.

Dave came to the conclusion after conducting a comprehensive cost and market analysis that the desalination membrane she developed would not be brought to market.The current technologies simply excel in their respective fields.

They worked, were mass-produced, and were cheap.Dave claims that there was no market for our technology.
