Clean water is definitely one of the most important resources we have on this planet and we need it for our bodies to work. Water pollution can be very harmful to the environment and can impact negatively on the health of the people who need to use that water. The American Chemical Society has prepared a report on one of the latest advancements in cleaning lead-polluted water resources by using a fleet of microbots. Leveraging such artificial helpers we could help to fight water crises, like the one from Flint in Michigan, in the future. Thanks also to Tech by Guff for sharing this video with us. Enjoy!
According to a recent report, a fleet of microbots could eliminate 95 percent of the lead in polluted water in a single hour. With this technology, scientists could combat water crises like the one in Flint, Michigan. “This work is a step toward the development of smart remediation system where we can target and remove traces of pollutant without producing an additional contamination,” said Samuel Sanchez, who co-authored the study.
