Scientists Invented New Way of Seawater Desalination

July 09, 2013Desalination of seawater happens in two general ways at present: by vacuum distillation, where the water is boiled at a pressure below the atmospheric, and by reverse osmosis, where the salt is extracted by pushing the water through semi-permeable membrane. Scientists at The University of Texas at Austin and the University of Marburg in Germany invented third way of seawater desalination which is far simpler and requires less energy than the conventional methods.
