A team of University of South Florida students, led by engineering professor Daniel Yeh, have created the NEWgenerator – a patented device that could help developing countries by turning wastewater and other waste into reusable, beneficial products. See where the NEWgenerator is being field-tested on University Beat on WUSF TV.
Daniel Yeh, an Associate Professor in the USF College of Engineering, talks about the purpose of the NEWgenerator, how it works, why it's being field-tested in India, and what he sees for its future use.
USF Environmental Engineering doctoral student Jorge Calabria describes how the NEWgenerator can be used to grow plants.
