Scientists have created a sieve capable of removing salt from seawater using the “wonder material” graphene.
Researchers at the University of Manchester developed a graphene membrane to desalinate water and make it drinkable, offering the promise of easy and accessible potable water for millions of people around the world.
A study published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology describes how the filtration system works by precisely controling the membrane’s pore size to sieve common salts out of salty water.
Phi Beta Iota: Free energy may finally be about to be released from secret patent control. That will be a lot less expensive that refined graphene as a means of distilling unlimited quantities of clean water while also cleansing the Ganges, among other important bodies of water, at scale. Still, this is a positive development.
