New invention to make water recycling faster and cheaper

Washington, June 15 (ANI): A scientist has invented a new water filtration method that is cheaper and can recycle about five times faster than present day systems.

According to a report in ENN, the scientist who made the invention is Meng Lean from California, US.

Though the water is not safe for drinking, it can be used for activities such as agriculture.

The system involves a spiral filtration system. Water is funneled through lightweight disks as they spin, separating dirt and particles from the clean water.

Another advantage of the new invention is that much less land space is needed than for a water-treatment plant.

Lean continues to refine his system.

He and his team plan to experiment on a larger level by the end of June. The goal is to recycle 100 liters of water a minute. (ANI)
