#Graphene could relieve world water shortage – sea water desalination – an annotated infographic

Solar cells, condoms, insulators, photovoltaics, batteries, flexible electronics – only a few of the technological areas in which researchers are finding uses for graphene, the single-atom thick, pure carbon wonder material. Now graphene has been touted as a possible solution to the world’s water storage problems. As the human population rises, desalination¬† – the expensive process of extracting salt from sea water in order to produce fresh drinking water – is becoming critically important. Graphene could make it affordable. Scientists are now determining how graphene could be used to filter sea water into drinking water for a fraction of present … Continue reading #Graphene could relieve world water shortage – sea water desalination – an annotated infographic
