How seawater desalination can help fight climate change

How seawater desalination can help fight climate change

Join us as for Saturday Engineering for Everyone (SEE), an open and free lecture series aimed at non-engineers of all backgrounds who are interested in learning about engineering. Prof Jont Allen is proposing an innovative approach to desalination that uses thermodynamics to separate ocean-water into potable water and salt.
