Smart graphene membrane desalinates water

Scientists have devised a simple, sturdy graphene-based hybrid desalination membrane. The device can provide clean water for agriculture and one-day human consumption.

Graphene technology used to desalinate water

Manchester - Given that less than 1 percent of the water on the planet is drinkable, a process to remove minerals, like salt, from water could help to alleviate many problems for the global community.

Jordan plans number of desalination plants to cope with drought

Amman - Jordan is one of the driest countries in the world and climate change looks set to make it even more arid. Plans for a number of desalination plants have been around for several years now but the BBC reported yesterday they seem to be coming to fruition.

New technology desalinates seawater using store-bought battery

Turning salt water into safe drinking water is an expensive endeavor with desalinization plants running upwards of US $1 billion, but researchers hope that a small, efficient, and inexpensive device known as the “water chip” will change all that.

Op-Ed: The Imminent Water Wars

It takes 1000 tons of water to produce 1 ton of grain and agriculture consumes almost 70 percent of the world's water - though only less than 30 percent in OECD countries.

Op-Ed: Think like the sheep; Australia’s future water fiasco, explained

If there’s one working brain cell in this country on the subject of water supply, it’s well camouflaged. Recent reports from the water industry indicate both a water shortage and more expensive water, partly through the costs of desalination.

South Africa to look at desalination to solve water crisis

South Africa's Water Affairs Minister, Buyelwa Sonjica said in her budget speech on April 15 that the water-scare country will look to use desalinated sea water to meet the growing demand for drinking water.

Windmill for Seawater Desalination Tested

A traditional windmill which drives a pump: that is the simple concept behind the combination of windmill/reverse osmosis developed by the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in The Netherlands.
