Purification Technology

Treehugger reports on a low-energy, no clog water filter. The technology is still in the development phase but looks promising. I am not sure if it will work for desalination, but a derivative version probably will and that would be a big deal for those searching for more-reliable water supplies from the sea.

Other than a pre-filter for reverse osmosis almost no chance this will be a desalinization breakthrough. It already won't do bacteria because they are too small. Salt ions are at least four orders of magnitude smaller.
