Desalinating (and drinking) seawater: towards novel desalination membranes with enhanced performance
A study conducted at the Politecnico di Torino (Italy) in close collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA) and published by “Nature Communications” journal shows an innovative way to improve the performance of desalination membranes. In the future, membranes for reverse osmosis manufactured with these novel criteria could desalinate seawater with significantly reduced costs
