An Indian-American teen boy from Jesuit High School in Portland,US, has found a cheap method to turn salt water into drinkable freshwater.

Chaitanaya Karamchedu’s science school project of turning saline water into potable water has piqued the interest of several international firms as finding a cheap method to do it has stumped scientists for years.

Karamchedu found out that only ten percent of seawater is saline and the rest ninety percent is not bonded with salt particles. Unlike other scientists, he decided to come with a cost-effective solution to desalinate the ninety percent of seawater which was not bonded with salt particles.

The teenager figured it out, on his own, in a high school lab.

Desalination process currently is not only very expensive but is also not supported by environmental agencies for its high energy consumption. Karamchedu’s method is economical, energy efficient and will be a boon to millions of people across the globe who at present do not have access to clean, safe drinking water.



The US Agency for International Global Development awarded him $10,000 to continue with the experiment and also bagged him second prize at MIT’s TechCon Conference.

Take a look at the video below to learn more about this massive breakthrough:
