Some of today’s greatest energy efficiencies are born at the interface of water and energy conservation. A new filtering material used for desalination has introduced the possibility of efficiency gains by facilitating the removal of sodium from seawater or process brine while simultaneously extracting lithium.

Modern desalination plants typically use

By forcing salt water against polymer membranes that trap salt ions and allow fresh water through, reverse osmosis (RO) desalination is an effective water treatment technique. It is relatively expensive, however, due to the energy used to push water molecules through the membrane. But a remarkable facility in Israel, is
