Did you know that most of the water on our planet is salty? In order to use it we need to remove the salt. Desalination is a process that uses a membrane technology and is used worldwide. Spain is the country with the 4th largest capacity for desalting water. In this activity, the participants can get to know what a membrane is and they can learn how to make a new membrane at lab scale. Furthermore, we will discover that used commercial membranes can be recycled.
