Recently, a new breakthrough was made in graphene-based water treatment when a research team at Monash University and University of Kentucky created a viscous form of graphene oxide that can be spread with a blade.
Solving the problems of water pollution and water shortage is an urgent need for the sustainable development of modern society. Different approaches, including distillation, filtration, and photocatalytic degradation, have been developed for the purification of contaminated water and the generation of clean water. This study explored a new approach that uses solar light for both water purification and clean water generation.
The device is a small plastic canister that attaches to a battery with what look like miniature jumper cables. Using a special “brine bottle,” you add salt and water in amounts indicated by lines. Mix it up, and add the salt solution to the SE200. With the push of a button, the canister illuminates, and the solution begins to bubble.
A new purification process that, if successful, could help millions of people without access to clean water quickly and efficiently purify water to make it safe for drinking and cooking is being pioneered by researchers.
In light of Earth Day (April 22), The University of Florida has created an infographic “Five Water Purification Designs for Third World Communities” to help people visualize five water purification designs that can benefit developing nations, according to ufonline.ufl.edu.
New selective membranes in the form of thin hollow straws can improve water purification. This emerges from research by Joris de Gooth from UT’s MESA+ research institute.
Water is an essential of life that many of us take for granted. In industrialized countries, we’ve become accustomed to a seemingly endless flow of pure, uncontaminated water from the tap at the turn of a wrist. In our society, access to an unlimited amount of clean water is considered the norm, and as a result we often waste it.
Millions of children can be saved from the ill-effects of fluoride and arsenic contamination in water with the use of a nanoparticle technology patented by a Bangalore University professor.
Engineering students tackle two problems with one clever project — how to transport water and purify it at the same time.
Aquasana water filtration system removes water contaminants from your water supply such as voc’s ,chlorination, chlorinated solvents and other contaminants thus alleviating the drinking water contamination
