Scientists in India found a way to make water from sea drinkable for humans. This process can prepareВ 6.3 million liter of drinkable waterВ every day. This method also can makeВ filtration ofВ groundwater which containsВ arsenic and uranium.
This project was developed inВ Tamil NaduвЂ™s Kalpakkam and it was built from team of scientists fromВ Bhabha AtomicВ Research Centre. It usesВ waste steam from a nuclear reactor to purify the seawater.
At this moment theВ fresh water is being used at the Kudankulam nuclear reactorВ and itВ doesn’t haveВ saline at all.
вЂњBesides, BARC has developed several membranes, by which, at a very small cost, groundwater contaminated by uranium or arsenic can be purified and make fit for drinking,вЂќ – said KN Vyas, Director, Bhabha Atomic Research Center, Mumbai.
TheВ Prime Minister Narendra Modi had pedalled a bicycle that had a water purifier installed on it.В It turns dirty contaminated water into potable water. Turning the pedals produces the energy the purifier needs.
The scientists also made severalВ household water purifiers. They useВ thin membranes and special filters to separate the contaminants.
