Engineers at Brown University have developed a system that cleanly and efficiently removes trace heavy metals from water. In experiments, the researchers showed the system reduced cadmium, copper, and nickel concentrations, returning contaminated water to near or below federally acceptable standards. The technique is scalable and has viable commercial applications, especially in the environmental remediation and metal recovery fields.
This is awesome. We can remove metals without having to boil the water. Pretty awesome to think that if the morons trying to ruin this country would get out of the way, we’d be able to clean some shit up.
