Singapore Leads Efforts to Further Improve Reverse Osmosis Technology
It is estimated that in at least 15 years, about half of the global population would have reduced or no access at all to drinking water. Singapore is one of the countries that are expected to be hit severely by further depletion of potable drinking water supplies. That is why the national government is actively working to boost production of drinking water supply in a more energy efficient and affordable way. It is eyeing more effective and cheaper approaches to reverse osmosis.
Is Reverse Osmosis Bad for Our Health?
Although reverse osmosis offers clean water the health concerns that hound the filtered water still remains an issue today. Those who sell reverse osmosis products would argue otherwise and insist that they have no health related concerns regarding the water that passed through the filtration process.
The Uses Of Reverse Osmosis
If necessity is the mother of invention, then, in essence, reverse osmosis is truly a daughter of necessity. It was initially developed by the U.S. Navy to produce drinking water through desalination (getting the salt out of sea water) for submarine crews. Today, the uses of reverse osmosis have branched out to other areas, including home use and uses in other industries.
