Original Message 'Water chip' can desalinate seawater with electrical field

Scientists desalinate seawater with "water chip" and electricity, set to scale up with help of startup.

An international team of chemists has introduced a new method for the desalination of seawater that consumes less energy and is dramatically simpler than conventional techniques.

The new method uses a chip to create a small electrical field that removes salts from seawater, and requires so little energy that it can run on a store-bought battery.

“The availability of water for drinking and crop irrigation is one of the most basic requirements for maintaining and improving human health,” said Richard Crooks of The University of Texas at Austin, who led the research with Ulrich Tallarek of the University of Marburg.

Researchers applied 3.0 volts of electricity to a small plastic chip filled with seawater.

The prototype "water chip" contains a microchannel with two branches. At the junction of the channel an embedded electrode creates an "ion depletion zone" that increases the local electric field compared with the rest of the channel.

This change in the electric field redirects salts into one channel, allowing desalinated water to pass through the other.

Crooks and his colleagues have so far achieved 25 percent desalination. Drinking water requires 99 percent desalination, but scientists are confident in their "proof of principle" and say full desalination can be achieved.

The technique, called electrochemically mediated seawater desalination, is patent-pending and is in commercial development by startup company Okeanos Technologies.

Bye bye, masonic pseudo-arguments to justify "the need for depopulation"!
