Cool Roofs Have Water Saving Benefits Too

coolroofsfig6.png

The energy and climate benefits of cool roofs have been well established: By reflecting rather than absorbing the sun’s energy, light-colored roofs keep buildings, cities, and even the entire planet cooler. Now a new study by the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has found that cool roofs can also save water by reducing how much is needed for urban irrigation.

UChicago Medicine First Site in Illinois Offering Pioneering CAR T-Cell Therapy for Cancer

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved the use of a breakthrough cancer treatment — Yescarta (axicabtagene ciloleucel) — for adult patients with relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Approval came just weeks after making the therapy available for young patients with leukemia. The University of Chicago Medicine is the first site in Illinois to be certified by both Kite Pharma Inc. and Novartis.

Reducing Power Plants’ Freshwater Consumption with Sandia’s New Silica Filter

Silica_Removal_LDRD.jpg

Power plants draw more freshwater than any other consumer in the United States, accounting for more than 50 percent of the nation’s freshwater use at about 500 billion gallons daily. To help save this water, researchers at Sandia National Laboratories have developed a new silica filter for power plant cooling waters that decreases the amount of freshwater power plants consume by increasing the number of times cooling tower water can be reused and recycled.

Active Sieving Could Improve Dialysis and Water Purification Filters

JCP017738-Marbach-ActiveSieving-France-Image-Reinventingthecolander.jpg

Physicists in France have proven theoretically that active sieving, as opposed to its passive counterpart, can improve the separation abilities of filtration systems. These new views on how active sieving could improve systems such as those used in water purification and dialysis were reported this week in The Journal of Chemical Physics. Active sieving also has the potential to filter molecules based on movement dynamics, opening up a whole new avenue in the field of membrane science based on the ability to tune osmotic pressure.
