By Pilar Sánchez Molina on Mar 13 2020, 2:56 pm        Researchers at the University of Bath, UK, have developed a new desalination process that could become an ideal solution for remote locations affected by natural disasters. The research team developed a prototype of a 3D printed desalination system that works with AC electricity. They describe it as a low-power system with no moving parts. The system combines cationic diodes based on micro-hole substrates coated with Nafion ionomer with an anion conducting membrane. Nafion is a synthetic polymer with ionic properties produced by Chemours, a unit...
