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.

Researchers at Texas Tech University found a way to decay the dye by filtering the water through special nanofiber webs and exposing it to visible light – a process called 'photodegradation'.

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.
