В США разработали новую энергоэффективную систему для переработки воды

Для людей, проживающих в жарком, сухом климате, например, в Австралии или же на юго-западе Соединенных Штатов, возможность повторного использования бытовых сточных вод для полива растений или смыва в туалете является частичным решением проблемы водных ресурсов. С другой стороны, сегодня широкое распространение получают системы рекуперации сбросного тепла, например, от канализационных труб, но они работают только тогда, […]
