Europe consumes billions of cubic metres of water each year. Several Graphene Flagship initiatives study new solutions for water purification, using graphene-enabled filters help remove contaminants, pesticides, heavy metals and dangerous pathogens.
This Graphene Flagship Spearhead Project develops innovative graphene-enabled filters for household water treatment and portable water purification.
Graphene to remove heavy metals
Our Graphene Flagship Partnering Project 2D-CHEM develoved new filters to remove heavy metal pollutants from water, expanding the potential of graphene to produce clean water.
A sweet solution!
Graphene Flagship partner Tecnalia created and patented GRAPHESALT to desalinate sea water, overcoming the main critical limitations of the state-of-the-art technologies.
