IBM Makes Water Clean With Smarter, Energy-Efficient Purification
IBM has unveiled a novel nanomembrane technology that stands to alleviate the
growing shortage of drinkable water worldwide. Scientists at IBM Research, together
with collaborators from Central Glass, the King Abdul Aziz City for Science
and Technology, and the University of Texas, Austin have created a new membrane
that filters out salts as well as potentially harmful toxins in water such as
arsenic while using less energy than other forms of water purification.
