What is the latest advancement in water purification technology? Google has just unveiled a new product called Bluetactles. These water filtration systems use low-energy, silver nanoparticles to eliminate bacteria, viruses, and pathogens. In fact, these products can provide up to 20,000 litres of safe water each day for up to 10 years.
The world’s water infrastructure is failing in many places. Today, we waste billions of gallons of safe drinking water each year, mainly for energy production, farming irrigation, and other water-hungry industries. Water-contaminated water affects 780 million people worldwide, causing 502,000 deaths annually from diarrhea. These tragedies are preventable if people have access to safe water. Today, there are several technological innovations that can bring clean water to communities.
