Pakistani practice a pilot field with Salt Farm Texel
Salt Farm Texel (Netherlands) introduces ‘zero water’ vegetables in drought stricken South Africa.
The Texel initiative, known as S/Zout, features food products that emerge from a collaboration between Studio H and Salt Farm Texel, a Netherlands-based enterprise that grows salt-tolerant potatoes, carrots, onions, lettuce, cabbage and barley. Read More
Why does scientists focus that much at that ten percent if we deal with the 90 percent?
This kid is amazing. The 17-year-old Chai developed a logic technology to turn salt water into fresh water.
Over 70 percent of the earth’s surface is covered with water, but only a fraction of it is fresh water. Scientists know how to get the salt out of seawater, but have so far not found an affordable way to do that inexpensive on a large scale.
Tiny holes called nanopores, is specially designed to let high volumes of water through but keep salt and other contaminates out
MoS2 Nanopores, developed by the University of Illinois, seems to be an energy-efficient technique for removing salt from seawater. The material, a nanometer-thick sheet of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) riddled with tiny holes called nanopores, is specially designed to let high volumes of water through but keep salt and other contaminates out, a process called desalination.

In addition, changes in weather patterns in the Caribbean due to climate change are exacerbating existing water challenges.
Desalination is not new to the Caribbean, but extracting clean water from seawater is becoming an increasingly integral part of the region’s search for water security.
Since 2007, 68 new desalination plants have been built across the Caribbean, which now boasts an installed capacity of 782,000 cubic metres of purified water per day, according to the Caribbean Desalination Association.
The Molten Salt Battery is a battery to watch right now. An overview.
In Molten Salt Batteries (also known as liquid metal batteries) two liquid electrodes are separated by a molten salt electrolyte.
Characteristic of salts is that these are guiding in the liquid state because the ions are allowed to move freely. The salt and the electrodes separate themselves by their different densities and immiscibility. Read More
There might be a solutions for the future. A desalination plant which is cost efficient and delivers health, cheap drinking water
Desalination of Pacific Ocean water may prove to be a cheaper solution for California. California is running out of water. Since 2010 progressive drought is rendering the Central Valley, into a desert.
The San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers are drying up as is the aquifer beneath them. The Colorado River basin no longer meets the freshwater demands of both landowners and city dwellers in the U.S. Southwest. Read More
