Highly efficient nature-inspired membrane could potentially lower cost of water purification by 30 per cent
The growing demand for potable water calls for low energy and cost effective methods for water purification. Inspired by the natural water purification systems of the roots of the mangrove plant and the human kidney, a team of researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) Environmental Research Institute (NERI) has engineered a novel biomimetic membrane that can purify water at low pressure, thus reducing energy costs. This new technology can potentially reduce water purification costs by up to 30 per cent.
