Researchers at the Alexandria University in Cairo have put forth a cheap, cost-effective technology to desalinate seawater to turn it into drinking water – within minutes.
The published research paper titled “Desalination of Simulated Seawater by Purge-Air Pervaporation Using an Innovative Fabricated Membrane” can be found here.
The purification of water for consumption purposes has long been a cumbersome and expensive process. In what may prove to be a significant milestone in researching cheaper, efficient ways to desalinate sea water, researchers in Egypt may have found a solution, according to a report in Scidev.
The lack of access to clean [...]
