Grey Water recycling system - CONCORDIA

A recycling system for ‘grey water’ – water previously used for washing or food preparation – has been operating for the last decade at the French–Italian Concordia base in Antarctica. The multistep recycling process is based on a ceramic honeycomb peppered with holes 700 times finer than a strand of human hair followed by a pair of membranes that yield clean water.
