A PIO researcher in US has developed a gadget that can purify filthy water by retaining sunlight, a development that could be a global game-changer in the consumable water emergency.

Venkat Viswanathan, an assistant professor at the Carnegie Mellon University in US, along with associates developed an applied gadget combining filthy water and sunlight to make a consumable water source.

He said that, “Theoretically, you would dip a stick of this material in a bucket of water, take it outside, and it would absorb sunlight.”

He further stated that, “What we are doing, basically, is utilizing the vitality of the Sun to energize or oxidize water into an aggravate that has the intensity to clean.”

The proposed gadget comprises of a bar of some material, tin oxide or titanium dioxide, which would ingest sunlight to permit the water to oxidize, producing hydrogen peroxide.

Tin oxide and titanium dioxide are extremely stable compounds. In other words, they do not like to bond; hardly any chemicals stick to them.

Utilizing vitality from the sun photons, tin oxide and titanium oxide oxidize the water atom (H2O) to hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).

Once the hydrogen peroxide has wiped out all the water’s microorganisms and natural toxins, the gadget would self-close down. “Also, once the synergist response has completed, you would take the stick out and expose the water to sunlight for a bit period. If the water heats up even just a little bit, the hydrogen peroxide will decompose and become water and oxygen again,” Viswanathan said.

Viswanathan further asserted that, ‘It is foreseen that around 3 billion people would not have admittance to clean drinking water by 2020.’

However he is confident that the gadget, when it is in the long run prototyped and discharged, will cut that number down.
