New Scientist article 2,037 people have signed up for the program, which will be open to all participants, with some participating on their own.
The program is based on the idea that “we can use the power of technology to make water cleaner, safer, and more affordable,” says Dr Robert Bock, from the Royal Institution’s Institute of Technology.
“It’s about taking what we know about water and turning it into a platform for innovation and discovery,” he adds.
Dr Bock’s team will work with scientists from around the world to use “electrolyte” and “biomass” to “control” the flow of water through the device.
“We are hoping to use this technology to do things that we haven’t done before,” says Professor Simon Wilson from the University of Cambridge.
Dr Wilson’s group, called Biomass BioFlow, has developed a system to capture and store CO2 gas in the atmosphere, while also turning it back into oxygen.
The system can be used to make CO2 capture and storage “less costly and more efficient” than traditional ways of capturing CO2, he says.
“With the right technology, we can potentially produce water from seawater that is both cleaner and more expensive than other types of water.”‘
The power of the technology’As part of the program participants will also receive training on how to make their own eso filters.
“Our goal is to use the technology to create the technology that will enable us to create a clean, safe, and affordable solution for everyone,” says the company’s head of research and innovation, Dr Tom Novell.
“This is a global effort and the first of its kind, and we look forward to working with the wider science community to continue this process.”
“This initiative will help us get to a point where we can build a truly global solution,” Dr Noveell adds.
“When we start we are talking about a huge scale of technology.”
The technology is very flexible, and it can be adapted to suit the needs of different countries, communities and environments.
“For example, Dr Norell says the system can “take the CO2 from seawaters and turn it into oxygen.
“The program also plans to use a small device to collect water from the ocean.
The device, which can be mounted on a boat, would collect CO2 in an aquifer and then filter it through an electrolyte.
The researchers say that “the first thing we need to do” to achieve their goal of a sustainable, cheap, and energy efficient solution for water is to scale up the production and distribution of the electrolyte needed to produce the electrolytes.
Dr Novella says that with their current scale, the project could be “in a few years”.”
It will take about five to 10 years, so we will be very ambitious,” he says, adding that he hopes the team can produce electrolytes at a “high-scale scale” within five years.”
I think it’s going to be really exciting,” he concludes.”
But the first step is to get the technology and the technology is not easy to get, so it’s hard to predict when we will actually be able to achieve this,” he continues.”
Ultimately, we are hoping that it will be possible to make it cheaper and easier for people to use and consume water.
