In a world pitting declining fresh water supplies against increasing fresh water needs, the UK’s Amazon Filters Ltd has come up with a new seawater filtration system that uses a specially designed housing fit with a salt-removing cartridge.

A seawater filtration system of this type generally uses a matrix of nanoparticle-embedded porous polymer sheets that attract water molecules but repel other particles. When seawater passes through the porous membranes, salt and other undesirable particles are filtered out. The process is much less expensive than other ocean water desalinization methods.
