Turning Saltwater into Drinking Water

Turning Saltwater into Drinking Water

Turning saltwater into drinking water by using a new kind of membrane which is more porous. The membrane (MOF) blocks the salt ions but lets the fresh water through. Water scarcity is a major problem across the world. "It affects every continent," says Amir Barati...
