Dewatering Prototype.

Today's coal mining produces a toxic waste slurry that poses significant environmental hazards.

TPM worked with the ISTC department at the University of Illinois on a prototype that efficiently removes water from this slurry, rendering it as a dry powder much easier and safer to process.


Solar iPhone Battery Backpack

This fully functional proof-of-concept prototype is compatible with the iPhone 6 & 7 models, and can charge from a wall charger or the integrated solar panel.
