  • Denkenberger Publishes Paper in Prestigious Journal

ACEP's David Denkenberger recently published a paper, "Energy Efficient Materials for Solar Water Distillation — A Review," in the journal Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews. The paper reviews simple solar stills that evaporate and condense salty or contaminated water to purify it and are appropriate for remote communities. The focus is on new technologies, including phase change materials, nano-enabled phase change materials, nanoparticle solar absorbers, etc.
