RO (Reverse Osmosis) Systems

An Overview of RO Systems Like so many modern technological advances, RO (Reverse Osmosis) systems are based on natural processes. In this case, the credit must go to the botanists for unravelling the process by which water passes to and from through the cellulose walls of plant cells. Plants need...
