Emerging Technologies for Emergency Applications

Abstract

Emerging water treatment technologies currently being researched and developed will play an important role in the future of emergency water treatment devices. Several of these technologies are being developed, such as carbon nanotubes, or are already in use and are being refined, such as iodinated resins and renewable energy sources. All of these emerging technologies offer a form of improved water treatment, whether that improvement is a new energy source or fewer disinfection byproducts.
