It is called Membrane Processes (Reverse osmosis and nano-filtration).


Dissolved salts (solute) separation processes include nanofiltration and reverse osmosis. When you apply pressure on water (seawater or brackish water) water molecules flow through filters whereas salts accumulate on the feed side of the media. Time to time cleanup is necessary to satisfy your need.
