Summary: 
Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have repurposed a technique they developed for desalination to continuously treat the water that nuclear power facilities use to cool their equipment.  The process, known as shock electrodialysis, targets specific ions based on their electrical charge and can run for several months without operator intervention.
