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.

Eco cities have a huge opportunity to impact the magnitude of climate exchange: after all, larger cities are consuming two thirds of the world’s energy and responsible for emitting over 70% of global CO2 emissions.
We analyzed the key objectives of the top 10 eco cities that were ranked highest in terms of environmental sustainability. Read More
Worldwide, urban areas have to deal with climate change. Consequences: to much water, drought and not enough drinking water. It’s time for climate change adaptation. More water and flora (making the city greener) will make the city more resilient during periods of extreme rainfall or drought. Read More
Nr. 1 water stressed metropool Tokyo. Picture of the Skyline of Tokyo, with Mount Fuji in the backyard
Want to know which cities suffer from water stress? The Nature Conservancy has published a list of the top 20 of cities with water stress.
Over 500 cities around the world were investigated. In (big) cities like Tokyo, Shanghai and LA, a large number of people in a relatively small area puts a lot of pressure on water supplies, especially during times of drought. Read More
