In an attempt to solve this problem, Google has developed a new product called Solmeyea, which uses silver nanoparticles to purify water. It is capable of purifying up to 4,000 litres of water per day, and its makers are hoping to bring clean drinking-water to communities in developing countries. The device uses polydimethylsiloxane condensers and carbon paper evaporators to reduce the water temperature below the dew point, which leads to vapour condensation.
This process requires no land and emits no greenhouse gases, so it is perfect for small islands. The technology behind this process is relatively inexpensive, too. The cost of purifying saltwater has been cut in half since 2010, making it accessible to even the smallest farms and communities. The water produced by this new technology will be more affordable, which means clean water will soon be accessible for everyone.
The technology developed by Solmeyea uses solar-powered devices that collect and purify water. The devices can be installed in homes, buildings, or anywhere else where water is not a priority. The devices are very affordable and can be easily installed. They can also be used on farms and small islands. Innovative water purification technologies are also available. In fact, solar-powered desalination is already helping farmers reduce their water consumption.
This new water filtration system uses graphite filters to filter water. These filters are customizable for the size and pore diameter of water. They can filter any contaminant present in water. According to materials physicist Rahul Nair, this new filter can improve the efficiency of desalination, especially in areas without large desalination plants.
