Scientists Develop Plasma-Treated Nano Filter to Clean Water in the Developing World

A team of international researchers have found a new way to purify water in the developing world. It’s a filter made of plasma-charged carbon nano-tubes that can easily filter out harmful contaminants and even remove salt from otherwise undrinkable briny water. The filters are small — easy to integrate into a teapot-sized portable water purifier . For poor or remote villages, these devices would be much more practical than building a large-scale purification plant , which would require a large amount of energy and high labor costs to keep running.
