The article reports that water purification startup company Oasys Water in Cambridge, Massachusetts, has closed a $10 million first round of venture financing to further develop its desalination and water treatment technology. It states that Flagship Ventures, Advanced Technology Ventures and Draper Fisher Jurvetson led the financing. The startup says its reverse osmosis system produces drinking water at less than half the cost of current desalination methods.
