Water Purification

Last year, we told you about a revolutionary machine developed by USF engineers that could help developing countries by turning wastewater into reusable, beneficial products. This device, called the "NEWgenerator,” has been undergoing field testing for the last few months. On University Beat on WUSF Public Media, we’ll travel to India and check in with the USF student who’s been putting the generator through its paces and see how it’s doing.
