Carbon Water Filter Purifies water with very inexpensive nanotech tea bag

Water filtration is a critical health need for billions of people around the globe who use polluted water from local surface water. A new filter technology can make personal filtration safe and affordable for daily drinking water.

A tea bag sized carbon water filter has been developed that can suck contaminants and bacteria out of water for less than a penny!

Researchers at South Africa's Stellenbosch University made the carbon water filter in a water bottle filtration system from the same material used for the bags of the country's popular rooibos tea. Inside the tea bag sized carbon water filter are two tiny filtration ingredients: ultra-thin nanoscale fibers which filter harmful contaminants and another ingredient - grains of carbon, which kills bacteria.

The ease of use and low cost of this nanotech carbon water filter will be able to go a long way in improving health conditions for the billions of people without potable water sources -- and could also be helpful in managing water resources after disasters such as floods and droughts, as well.

Carbon water filters use natural materials, and when combined with ease of use, this nantechnology plus carbon make the solution low cost, easily distributed, easily updated with a fresh carbon water filter, and a portable solution for potentially, billions of people.
