The intricate connection between water and energy has become threatened in recent years by the rapid depletion of both essential resources. But due to Israel's work in developing water-conservation technologies and ever-increasing use of alternative energy sources, water and energy consumption as we know it can continue to flourish. This year's upcoming WATEC Israel 2011 will shine a timely light on the Water & Energy Nexus that is proving to be a topic worth discussion. Houston, TX...

The need for fresh water is expanding every day and over one-third of the world's population currently inhabit areas struggling to keep up with the demand for water. Researchers estimate that by 2025, that number will nearly double. Digging deeper or pumping water from further upstream in the water table is only a short-term solution that often leads to disputes between countries and water conservation and reuse projects have only limited effectiveness. A new study from Yale University and...

In this month's Physics World, Jason Reese, Weir Professor of Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics at the University of Strathclyde, describes the role that carbon nanotubes (CNTs) could play in the desalination of water, providing a possible solution to the problem of the world's ever-growing population demanding more and more fresh drinking water. Global population projections suggest that worldwide demand for water will increase by a third before 2030. But with more than a billion people...
