In its monthly industry release, The Silver Institute reported once again new applications of silver in products across several industries, in particular health. The Silver Institute has written extensively how silver has helped breakthrough improvements in product development and industries; read previous articles here, here, here, and here.
A researcher at the University of Virginia has developed a Drinkable Book in which each page acts as a filter producing potable water. The pages are imbedded with bacteria-killing silver nanoparticles and are designed to address life-threatening bacteria and other waterborne diseases for those who live in areas where clean drinking water is not available.
The sheets are bound into a book and users tear them out individually (each page has two filters), and place them in a plastic box – which comes with and houses the book – and pour water over it, much like filling a coffee filter with water. What drips out at the bottom is clean, drinkable water. Each 24-page book can sustain a person for up to four years, according to Water is Life, a group that helps to bring clean water to those who need it.
