New ‘veritable wonder’ which claims to make dirty water drinkable!

As per the new experiment, newly developed graphene-based biofoam sheets are laid on contaminated water, and with use on sun-rays the bacteria-produced cellulose and graphene oxide to form a bi-layered biofoam to convert filthy water into drinkable.In a bid to make dirty water fit for drinking, a team of scientists have come up with a device made up of “Veritable wonder material” graphene oxide sheets. The team of researchers developed the new device at Washington University in St. Louis. The graphene oxide sheets have been used in the device due to the fact that it is a good conductor of heat and electricity and turns out to be very useful in treating contaminated water. “We hope that for countries where there is ample sunlight, such as India, you’ll be able to take some dirty water, evaporate it using our material, and collect fresh water.” said Srikanth Singamaneni, one of the researcher.
