Eighteen organic pollutants tested and identified in the laboratory. The materials can absorb most of the contaminants which are present in the water of an urban area. The time taken to complete the whole absorption process is 24 hours.
What is the fact of Water Pollution crisis?
Researchers from the University of Seville identified absorbent materials which have the capacity for soaking most of the pollutants. Those pollutants are found in urban water. It takes 24 hours to complete the whole process
What are the two materials researchers evaluated?
1) A highly-charged expandable synthetic mica
2) A material obtained from cation exchange with an organo-functionalized mica
What was the study behind the water pollution crisis?
The study of 18 organic pollutants tested, including industrial pollutants, personal care products, and active ingredients. All those pollutants at the end of their life cycle enter the water in some form.
What is said by Esteban Alonso about water pollution?
Studies like this and others, in the same way, are showing the potentiality of materials that are used in the industrial treatment of water. Those water are affected by different types of pollution. Obtaining universal materials with a high elimination capacity and used for a wide range of pollutants. This is the main goal in this type of testing.
Especially the country like India where the population is proliferating and the level of pollution is very high rate. So these types of materials are in very high demand. If such kind of environmental degradation continues the country will lose drinking water by 2040
