LUBBOCK – Scientists claim to have discovered a way to use nanofiber webs and sunlight to safely, inexpensively and easily remove potentially harmful dyes from wastewater.

Seshadri Ramkumar, a professor in the university's Department of Environmental Toxicology, and doctoral candidate Lihua Lou worked on the project with experts in chemical and mechanical engineering.
