Solving a natural riddle of water filtration

Posted On: 06/25/21

A team of researchers has found a way to replicate a natural process that moves water between cells, improving how we filter out salt and other elements to create clean water while consuming less energy. This is the first instance of an artificial nanometer-sized channel that can improve the ability of membranes to efficiently filter out unwanted molecules and elements, while speeding up water transport, making it cheaper to create a clean supply.
