New Salt-wa­ter Sieve

Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - Out & About -

Re­searchers at the Univer­sity of Manch­ester in the UK have de­vel­oped a mem­brane that can fil­ter out com­mon salts, ef­fec­tively turn­ing sea­wa­ter into clean, drink­able wa­ter. While stud­ies are on­go­ing to de­ter­mine if the tech­nique can be ap­plied on an in­dus­trial scale, this sig­nif­i­cant break­through could rev­o­lu­tionise de­salin­i­sa­tion and wa­ter-fil­tra­tion ef­forts across the globe.
