Applying Graphene Technology to Water Sanitation
To obtain clean water, most people rely on the filtration system. However, advanced filtration systems often use polymer membranes, but people can now upgrade the structure with graphene.
According to experts, graphene remains a thousand times thinner than most membranes. However, despite its slim structure, the material has an impenetrable surface, which means any molecule can’t flow through. Yet, researchers suggest that by drilling holes to the graphene layer, they can create selective filters. Nonetheless, they may need multiple graphene layers to have a sensitive filter that works on water. That said, people can achieve sustainable water resources if done.
