The hottest scientist invented a new water filter

Scientists invented a new type of water filter: 99% filtered seawater can be drunk directly

the water we usually drink is basically fresh water, which is composed of water in rivers and lakes, alpine snow, glaciers and groundwater. Without water, there is no life. Only 3% of the water on the earth is fresh water. If all terrestrial life need to further understand the application of composite materials in aerospace, wind energy, cars, sports equipment, Applications in biomedicine and other fields depend on fresh water in the final analysis. In order to solve this problem, scientists from Australia have created a water filter. Through a new type of graphene called graphair, highly polluted seawater can be drunk after only one filtration

according to the researchers, about 2.1 billion people around the world cannot drink clean and safe drinking water, and millions of people die every year from diseases related to lack of water supply, poor sanitation and other factors, so he hopes to build a perfect purified water filter

graphair uses a kind of graphene made of soybean oil. Compared with the traditional graphene manufacturing method, it is more convenient to obtain products that meet quality standards, which are cheaper and easier to produce. The biggest feature of this material is hydrophobicity, which allows water to pass through, but can prevent the larger molecules of pollutants

after adding Sydney's seawater to the filter, scientists found that the filter screened out 99% of the pollutants, and even if it was covered by pollutants, it could still work normally. Researchers said: no matter how dirty the water is, the recycled material has a higher purity and performance, but serves the whole steel trade ecosystem. It can be drunk in one step

the team that invented graphair said that we hope to try it out in residential areas in developing countries next year, which can help them with urban water filtration, seawater and industrial wastewater treatment
