New solar technology created for desalination


Today’s Video of the Day from the National Science Foundation describes new technology that can convert saltwater into clean drinking water using only the power of sunlight. 

The desalination system uses a combination of membrane distillation technology and light-harvesting nanophotonics.

The project is part of a federally funded research effort at the Center for Nanotechnology Enabled Water Treatment, which is based at Rice University.
