Portable Nanomesh Creates Safer Drinking Water

In 2003, Seldon Technologies Inc., of Windsor, Vermont, began designing a carbon Nanomesh for filtering impurities from drinking water. Testing in EPA-certified facilities showed that Seldon's filters removed more than 99 percent of bacteria and viruses, numerous chemical contaminants, and endotoxins, such as Escherichia coli and Salmonella. Using a carbon Nanomesh, the WaterStick filters about 5 gallons (200 milliliters) of water a minute simply using water pressure (up to 3 PSI) and gravity-without electricity, heat, chemical additives, or environmental impact.
