MIT Water Desalination

ION CONCENTRATION POLARIZATION














While I don't pretend to understand what this means, I do know that a new development is in the works at MIT. The small, single unit (above), fabricated in one layer of silicone, could be the start of delivering fresh water to small villages, the world over.
"Portable" is the key word in this new development. The new system would work at a microscopic scale to desalinate water from the oceans to provide clean, contaminate-free drinking water.
For more information: MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
