EPA Grant Number: SU835310
Title: A Solar-powered, Sustainable, Hybrid Electrodialysis/Reverse Osmosis Desalination System

The lack of clean drinking water is one of the most significant health issues in many countries around the world. For communities located near the sea, saltwater could be a potential source of drinking water if the current treatment technologies were more affordable. Working with a university in the Philippines, Manhattan College students are developing a treatment system that uses concrete made from local materials and solar power to remove salt from seawater to produce potable water.
