OUR DEPENDENCE ON WATER
WATERS DEPENDENCE ON ENERGY
MARK SHANNONDirector of the Center of Advanced Materials for the Purification of Water with SystemsDepartment of Mechanical Science and EngineeringUniversity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Energy and Water are essential, interdependent resources.
Supplying energy requires water:- Refining Processes - Mining and Extraction- Hydrogen/Synfuels - Agriculture/Biomass/biofuels- Nuclear Power - Hydroelctric/Thermoelectric powerSupplying water requires energy:- Collection/Treatment/Distribution - Pumping Groundwater- Desalinization/Purification - HeatingEnergy-water conflicts are increasing in frequency and exacerbated by a growing population. Join us for an evening with Dr. Mark Shannon to discuss the problems, solutions and opportunities.
COME LEARN WITH US.
Mark Shannon is the Director of the Center of Advanced Materials for the Purification of Water with Systems (WaterCAMPWS), a group that consists of university faculty, research scientists, graduate & undergraduate students, and municipal practitioners from its 11 partner institutions: University of California Berkeley, MWRDG-Chicago, Clark Atlanta University, Howard University, University of Michigan, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, NRMRL-EPA, Rose Hulman Institute of Technology, Sandia National Laboratories, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and Yale University.
The mission of The WaterCAMPWS is to develop revolutionary new materials and systems for safely and economically purifying water for human use, while simultaneously developing the diverse human resources needed to exploit the research advances and the knowledge base created.
Mark Shannon is a professor in the Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering at University of Illinois and a part-time Beckman Institute faculty member in the 3D Micro- and Nanosystems group. His fields of professional interest are water, energetics and education.
Why are you invited? Because there are positive and negative outcomes of decisions you make dependent upon your understanding of energy. We are all stakeholders in addressing the efficiency, conservation, secure sourcing, and cost reduction of energy. It is complicated with no easy answers. There are NO SILVER BULLETS. Come learn with us.
