Innovative Water Desalination and Reclamation Systems
Project title: Global Aqua Innovation Center for Improving Living Standards and Water-sustainability (2013-2021)
Securing safe water supplies is becoming a worldwide challenge. Looking ahead to the future when the world population reaches 8 to 9 billions, this project brings together people form academia, industry, and government organizations across Japan to develop and deploy innovative desalination and water reclamation systems based on robust reverse osmosis membranes composed of nanocarbons.
