Understanding Biological Desalination in Mangroves and Biomimetic applications



The Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) and NEWRI (Nanyang Environment & Water Research Institute, Nanyang Technology University) are collaborating on a major multi-disciplinary research grant to work on the understanding of various biological desalination mechanism(s) in the roots of mangroves.


The next stage of the project is the biomimetic design and testing of various artificial mangrove-inspired structures for the purpose of desalinating seawater.
