Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

Water shortages are a global concern that needs to be addressed. Our biggest available source is the ocean, but current desalination processes are limited. One of the big limitations is how much pressure it takes to perform reverse osmosis. High pressures means for high energy costs, and in order to be sustainable, desalination needs to be energy efficient. A graphene filter would be thinner than contemporary models. We believe its utilization would result in less energy usage.
