Belarus State University develops unique water-cleaning technology


Researchers at the Minsk-based Belarus State University have developed a new technology which allows obtaining drinking water from virtually all contaminated sources.  Dzmitry Greenshpan, the chief of a laboratory at the Institute of Physics and Chemistry, maintains "there are no analogues of this technology anywhere in the world", reports Minsk Naviny news agency.

In cooperation with the Belarus Emergencies Ministry, scientists have manufactured five mobile water-processing devices with the output of 0.5-1 tons of water per hour. Hundreds of personal devices for 10-100 liters have also been manufactured using this technology.

It is assumed that Belarus could export these devices to the countries that have a problem with the drinking water.
