A Graphine roll out

IMG_6501

A new manufacturing process produces strips of graphene, at large scale, for use in membrane technologies and other applications.

MIT engineers have developed a continuous manufacturing process that produces long strips of high-quality graphene.

The team’s results are the first demonstration of an industrial, scalable method for manufacturing high-quality graphene that is tailored for use in membranes that filter a variety of molecules, including salts, larger ions, proteins, or nanoparticles. Such membranes should be useful for desalination, biological separation, and other applications.

First Implantable Artificial Kidney Could Work as Well as a Living Organ

artificial kidney

The artificial kidney will be the size of a coffee cup. Blood will be pumped through microscopic filters using the body’s own blood pressure.

An artificial kidney that would be implanted inside the body and work as well as a living organ is just around the corner, scientists have revealed.  U.S researchers have just unveiled the first prototype model of the device, that could eliminate the need for dialysis.

HyrdoWell Village

Haiti is looking for help with their water supply, and this may be it. Providing water in remote and austere environments is a logistical nightmare.  In emergencies, water systems take too long to setup.  Bulk water is expensive and difficult to deliver.  Surface water is almost always heavily contaminated, resulting in death and disease.
