A new technique could enable the production of robust, high-performance membranes to harness sea water as an abundant source of renewable energy, researchers report.
Blue energy, also known as osmotic energy, capitalizes on the energy naturally released when two solutions of different salinities mix—conditions that occur in countless locations around the world where fresh and salt water meet.
