While best of the technologies we abode on actuality on CleanTechnica – solar power, wind power, activity efficiency, and apple-pie busline technologies – are focused on acclamation our altitude and activity crises, addition analytical crisis adverse the apple today is the baptize crisis.
Did you apperceive that 80% of the world’s bodies face baptize crisis and abridgement of apple-pie baptize kills added bodies anniversary year than war?
The apple-pie technologies aloft do absolutely go a continued way in allowance us abode the baptize crisis, but there are others out there focused alone on that goal. Actuality are 10 water-saving and water-cleaning technologies we’ve accounting about so far:
1 Wind Ability Turbines (yes, accepted old wind turbines – they are the atomic water-needy electricity architect out there)
2 Solar PV Panels (not far abaft wind turbines, and far advanced of about every added ability option)
3 Fuel beef out of the University of Colorado that desalinate water, amusement water, AND aftermath electricity… application microbes.
4 Minced assistant peals.. seriously. They can apple-pie attenuated water, removing such metals as advance and copper. (OK, not technology, per say, but aces of admittance here.)
5 The Groasis Waterboxx, a accessory actualize by Dutch artist and afraid agriculturalist Pieter Hoff that uses biomimicry to actualize dew.
6 Wastewater Compliance Systems’ igloo-shaped baptize analysis device, accepted to save baby communities millions of dollars and acquiesce them to accommodate apple-pie baptize to added people.
7 Silver nanowires on affection layered with carbon nanotubes developed by Stanford scientists that annihilate up to 98% of E. coli bacilli in baptize after the use of chlorine.
8 Glass that swells and soaks up pollutants, but not water, like a sponge, developed by scientists at the College of Wooster.
9 Portable solar desalination apparatus created by MIT engineers – acceptable for disaster-stricken areas or bodies active in alien locations.
10 And… acute blaze hydrants that conserve a ton of water.
