One of the most basic needs of humanity drinking water, even in 2021, it is still for some people very difficult to reach a resource. The decrease in our drinking water resources with each passing year is affecting humanity in a significant way. threatening. According to the World Health Organization, we are currently on our planet. 785 millionman is deprived of pure drinking water.
On the other hand, consuming sea water causes great damage to our body and kidney failure. The idea of turning salt water, the largest water resource on our planet, into drinkable water resources has been a project that has been considered for years.
Can it quench the thirst in the world?
Korea Civil Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies ( KICT) for use in water treatment systems is a high performance electrospun nanofiber filter developed. This filter can be attached to standard water purification devices and 99.9%
It can desalinate at the rate of . In addition, this filter is in continuous use. Can last for 1 month. Previously used filters are only 50 hours could endure.
If these filters are approved and put into active use, water problems in many parts of the world can be eliminated and people pure potable water can be provided. Of course, in order for this to happen, this filter must be obtained from many institutions and organizations. needs approval.
Nano technology was used in the production of the filter
Dr Yunchul Woo, head of the team that produced the filter, said, “For the manufacture of this filter, electro-rotation
announced that they are using an alternative nano-technology called “”. In addition, due to the special equipment used in this filter and the structure of the filter, there is a special 3d dice was placed, making it easier to filter the salt.
It was said that the best way to create this 3D membrane is the method called electro-spinning. The filter, prepared by KICT engineers, filters water in a fairly stable state and can last up to 1 month. gives high performanceproved.
If this special filter is approved for use, it can reduce or even end the world’s thirst.
