Chemists Work to Desalt the Ocean for Drinking Water, One Nanoliter at a Time

Chemists Work to Desalt the Ocean for Drinking Water, One Nanoliter at a Time

By creating a small electrical field that removes salts from seawater, chemists have introduced a new method for the desalination of seawater that consumes less energy and is dramatically simpler than conventional techniques

University of Texas at Austin, IBM Collaboration Helps Develop Water Purification Technology

IBM Corp. recently announced it had developed a novel membrane technology that filters out salts as well as potentially harmful toxins such as arsenic from water while using less energy than other forms of water purification.

New Chlorine-Tolerant, Desalination Membrane Hopes to Boost Access to Clean Water

A chemical engineering professor at The University of Texas at Austin is part of a team that has developed a chlorine-tolerant membrane that should simplify the water desalination process, increasing access to fresh water and possibly reducing greenhouse gases.
