Everyone can agree that pollutants need to be removed from water, but removing very diluted concentrations of pollutants requires a great deal of energy and the use of high concentrations of chemicals. Now, a method developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) can remove even very low levels of unwanted contaminates. The method, described in the journal Energy and Environmental Science, in a paper by scientists at MIT and at the Technical University of Darmstadt in Germany, uses an electrochemical process to remove selective contaminants such as pesticides and chemical waste products. In the new system, water flows between chemically…
