3D printing “wonderful book” bringing clean and safe drinking water

3D printing “wonderful book” bringing clean and safe drinking water

At present, over 1 billion people on earth do not have clean water to drink, and 1/5 of deaths of children under age 5 deaths associated with diseases caused by drinking water. To change this situation, “water is life” Organization and creative agency “DDB North America” together to come up with a fix, they call it “drink.”
This “book” we usually see a book with pages, will resort to the language of the country where on each page write some tips to clean drinking water. But these “pages” can be torn, as a filter, place the container in a Galaxy Eco Solvent Printers

ryContaminated water, which can be filtered, clean and safe drinking water.
Of course, this magic “pages” are not usually made of paper, which consists of McGill University and the University of Virginia chemist Dr Theresa Dankovich invention, originally a coffee filter used to kill bacteria. This “book” is coated with silver nano-particles, you can kill the cholera bacteria, Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhimurium 99% (in the developing world, these are the stealthy assassin in the fgwater), making water safe to drink.
In fact, the filtered water quality comparable to United States water. Instead of matching the container has a 3D print, simply install it on it when used, very easy to use.
This “book” is only 20 pages or so, enough to provide clean drinking water for a year for one person. Of manufacturing costs only a few pennies per sheet of filter paper, is so far, selection of the cheapest on the market, every piece of filter paper to use for 30 days, so this “book” within a year, enough for one person with access to clean water.
“Water is life,” says in the third world, most people are not even aware that their drinking water is killing them, so this “book” water purification in the form of two functions of both education and clean water, is a perfect medium.
Development team, said they chose to use 3D printing make the filter container, mainly because of the 3D printing in small batch manufacturing is more economical and environmentally friendly, once this project is successful, they will carry out large-scale manufacturing.
