U.S. engineers say they've developed a portable water desalination system that can substantially reduce the costs and time involved in producing clean water. The UCLA researchers said their new mini-mobile-modular smart water desalination and filtration system called M3 also provides an all-in-one mobile testing plant that can be used to test nearly any water source. The advantages of this type of system are that it can cut costs, and because it is mobile, only one M3 system needs to be built...
