Water Filtration Now at 1000x Less Energy

A new water filtration technique, developed at Princeton University by Dr. Orest Shardt and Dr. Sangwoo Shin, promises to cut the energy consumption in water filtration to a thousandth of the consumption needed for conventional water filtration mechanisms. The technique uses carbon dioxide, to which the colloidal suspension is exposed. This technique could replace popular microfiltration and ultrafiltration techniques. Conventional water filtration techniques require a membrane, which often gets fouled
