According to the homepage of the german section of the Mars Society NASA has ordered a new recycling system for water which can recycle nearly 100% of water without maintenance for three years instead of the actual 90% only.

This will reduce the required amount of water to a weight of 2 to 3 tons.

NASA has given the order to an industrial consortium instead of setting a Centennial Challenges Prize.
