Title Graphene filters change the economics of clean water Media name/outlet The Financial Times Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 8/01/18 Description New approaches to filtration and extracting moisture from air promise to alleviate the world’s looming water scarcity crisis.
Filtration is being transformed by thin sheets of graphene, a carbon-based material invented in 2004 at Manchester University. Rahul Raveendran Nair, the university’s professor of materials physics, says graphene has the potential to deliver large quantities of clean water via desalination and the removal of pollutants.
