American scientists have found a way to ‘clean the dirty and salty water with roses.’ The scientists have created a cheap device to collect and clean the water, inspired by the rose. Through this, portable sources of water can be made for homes in far-flung areas. Texas scientists have developed a structure like a rose flower that can purify water more than half a gallon per hour. It also uses solar energy. By this, salt and other impurities can be separated from water through evaporation. This study has been published. It was told how to create a new type of solar-steaming system by making petals from black sheets of paper, by inspiring the rose petals. Currently, the number of solar-steaming systems are costly and cumbersome.
The team aimed to develop standard and portable systems. Donglai Fan, the chief researcher of this study, said that on these black papers, there is a particular type of polymer coat that is known as polypiperol. Polypirol is the material that is known for its photothermal properties. It converts sunlight into thermal heat. Researchers have said that in their new method, they tried to fold the coated black paper in several ways and make it the most useful. They turned in many ways, but the conclusions did not come to mind. Then he folded that rose petal and found that the results from that design were the best. In this device, a tube is attached below, which collects water and also collects rainwater. Researchers have said that this device helps in removing bacteria and other pollutants from water. It also removes salt from the water of the sea. The water purified by it caters to the standards of the World Health Organization. – Source EMS
