July 2018


A word from Richard

Hello everyone.

Well so much for Dry July! Great for the garden and I hope the farmers get plenty.

School holidays are upon us again and wow don’t they come around fast? This wet weather is going to keep kids indoors for sure so not much Vitamin D to be had this week so I do hope we get a few breaks in the weather for some Vitamin D.

Another Tax year gone. Hope the Tax man isn’t being too mean to you. It seems most of us are still going through tough times but we keep battling along in true Aussie Spirit. Let’s hope consumer confidence picks up and people start spending again.

Although it is still a bit chilly remember to keep hydrated with some nice filtered water and don’t forget; "You either use a water filter or your body is one!"

The seed that could bring clean water to millions

According to the United Nations, 2.1 billion people lack access to safely managed drinking water services, the majority of whom live in developing nations.

Carnegie Mellon University's Biomedical Engineering and Chemical Engineering Professors Bob Tilton and Todd Przybycien recently co-authored a paper with Ph.D. students Brittany Nordmark and Toni Bechtel, and alumnus John Riley, further refining a process that could soon help provide clean water to many in water-scarce regions. The process, created by Tilton's former student and co-author Stephanie Velegol, uses sand and plant materials readily available in many developing nations to create a cheap and effective water filtration medium, termed "f-sand."

"F-sand" uses proteins from the Moringa oleifera plant, a tree native to India that grows well in tropical and subtropical climates. The tree is cultivated for food and natural oils, and the seeds are already used for a type of rudimentary water purification. However, this traditional means of purification leaves behind high amounts of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) from the seeds, allowing bacteria to regrow after just 24 hours. This leaves only a short window in which the water is drinkable.

Velegol, who is now a professor of chemical engineering at Penn State University, had the idea to combine this method of water purification with sand filtration methods common in developing areas. By extracting the seed proteins and adsorbing (adhering) them to the surface of silica particles, the principal component of sand, she created f-sand. F-sand both kills microorganisms and reduces turbidity, adhering to particulate and organic matter. These undesirable contaminants and DOC can then be washed out, leaving the water clean for longer, and the f-sand ready for reuse.
