American scientists create new water filter

Researchers at Stanford University have found a new method of water purification that is both faster and cheaper than existing methods.

The department of Materials Science and Engineering created a filter with plain cotton cloth coated with tiny particles called nanomaterials.

The cloth is then capable of decontaminating bacteria.

Now they’re keen to turn the so called “nano-scale bug zapper” into a product that could be commercially viable and especially useful for those in developing countries with restricted access to sources of clean water.
