MIT develops new electrochemical process that has the ability to selectively remove organic contaminants, including chemical waste products, pesticides and pharmaceuticals, even at extremely low levels.
Nationwide, 77 million people were found to be exposed to unsafe water.
New water harvester device is capable of pulling liters of water out of the air using solar energy.
In the future, every household will be able to produce nearly three liters of water daily with this tool.
Is this the solution for many countries' water problem?
United States President Donald Trump has signed an Executive Order to dismantle the clean water rule, also known as the Waters of the United States.
Ever wondered how fog can be turned into clean water? A new initiative in Coastal Peru is transforming this idea into reality through a new creation called "fog catcher," which will be installed in far-flung areas of Lima, Peru, enabling poverty-stricken locals to have access to clean water.
A team led by researchers at Rutgers University developed tiny, glowing crystals that are designed to detect and capture heavy-metal toxins, such as lead and mercury, in drinking waters.
With water scarcity and accessibility, especially in far-flung areas, a global problem, various technologies have popped up to provide a solution for this problem. Apart from the WaterSeer, another water generator called SunToWater adds to the list of revolutionary devices that can produce clean water from thin air.
An Arizona startup by the name of Zero Mass Water is focused on building solar-powered water production systems that will gather water vapor from hot air. The said solar panel can generate water for a family of four.
WaterSeer's is a low-tech, cheap atmospheric water condenser that creates pure water from the air without any power or chemicals via condensation.
Using a combination of orange peels and industrial waste products, researchers from Flinders University have developed a material that could help clean the world's oceans by sucking up contaminates like mercury.
Using a water-resistant sponge material that absorbs contaminants, designers have created a 3D-printed bathing suit that cleans the water as you swim.
Pharmaceuticals that pass through sewage treatment plants contaminate drinking water sources. Scientists from the American Chemical Society have recently developed a way to re-design chemical structures of medicines so that they can easily biodegrade instead.
