Pure H2O

Typically, large amounts of energy are used to remove water pollutants from water. Now, Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Technical University of Darmstadt in Germany have developed an electrochemical process which can remove chemical waste, pharmaceutical waste, and pesticides.

It works by charging all surfaces of pollutants with Faradaic materials which receive a positive or negative charge. These can be drawn out of the water by binding with low voltages. In this way, the process remains inexpensive.

People in the developing world (where pesticides, chemicals, metals, dyes etc often create an unhealthy water supply) could soon be drinking a purer, healthier water. All this could be achieved through energy harvested from a few solar-panels. The process needs real-world testing but current results are extremely promising. We’ll keep you all posted!
