TEES water purification research featured in The Battalion

The water desalination work of TEES researcher Dave Burnett has been featured in The Battalion, Texas A&M University's student newspaper.

The research has sparked the interest of Colombian officials in the market for clean water. Researchers offer water-cleaning technology called membrane filtration, which purifies water contaminated from oil and natural gas production.

Burnett, director of technology at the Global Petroleum Research Institute, said more than 15 years of research lie behind TEES and Texas A&M's water filtration technologies and the demand for water filtration is not limited to Colombia.
