Desalination a dud?
The Lawrence Livermore researchers ... came up with new "carbon nanotube" membranes that are no larger in dimension than a quarter. The salt was separated with one-fourth of the electricity as in the current industry standard. If this small experiment could be replicated at a large scale, Lawrence Livermore would be onto something historic.
