A Swiss company by the name of SwissINSO Holding Inc. announced in a press release that they have invented and patented procedures and technologies that enable purifying seawater into drinking water. The systems are environmentally friendly and self-sufficient as they can be run on solar power.
They claim their process using patented reverse osmosis membrane filtration will produce unsurpassed performance and life expectancy.
Though now they will manufacture only larger, community-sized and emergency relief configurations, if it works as the manufacturers say it will, can it be long before individual units will be developed? And what a useful device that would be for boondockers, enabling use of not only sea water but water from streams and lakes, no longer be time-limited by the size of the water tank.
