Huge breakthrough. Need to see if this pans out. If successful this is the kind of invention that could change everything. But there is still a long way to go to produce this at commercial scale. But this is a breakthrough.
A UK-based team of researchers has created a graphene-based sieve capable of removing salt from seawater. The sought-after development could aid the millions of people without ready access to clean drinking water. The promising graphene oxide sieve could be highly efficient at filtering salts, and will now be tested against existing desalination membranes. Paul Rincon reports. (BBC)
