Major Finnish breakthrough in the production of clean water

Major Finnish breakthrough in the production of clean water | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it
Researchers at the Arcada University of Applied Sciences, Helsinki, have developed a new cost-efficient technology to produce separation membranes for the purification of water, at less than half the previous cost.

 

Soiled or salty water can be made potable by current technologies, but these are either costly or unreasonably energy-intensive. The most promising, but also the costliest, alternative is offered by separation with nanoporous membranes.
