The Growing Use of Reverse Osmosis Technology in Industry

While having its origins in biology, the term osmosis has gained entry into the general vocabulary as a metaphor implying that knowledge may sometimes be gained purely as the result of proximity to those who are more knowledgeable. In fact, this is not a bad analogy, as in nature, the...

What Is Reverse Osmosis and What Are Its Main Uses?

If, as a teenager, you studied life sciences at school, it is likely that you were introduced to the process by which water is able to pass in and out of living cells across the semi-permeable membranes that enclose the structures within them. The movement is the result of pressure...
