Innovative Filtration System Makes Clean Water Accessible

By

For many people, water filters are nearly a requirement to have in the household. In general, they are able to eliminate some of the runoff that lands in the liquid from treatment centers and through the kitchen faucet. Sadly, as great as these filters are, they aren’t as effective over time and many users don’t perform maintenance on a regular basis with them. That’s paved the way for a new reusable filter that nearly cleans out all the problems that could be in our water.

The Barron Research Group at Rice University has come up with SENT, or a supported-epoxidized carbon nanotube. It has the ability to eliminate over 99 percent of heavy metal contaminants that are hazardous to our health. This could be anything from mercury, arsenic, thallium, and commonly lead. It’s important to monitor how much goes into our bodies as it can cause heart disease, birth defects, dementia, and other unfortunate symptoms.
