The Drinkable Book - An innovative, life saving invention!
November 18, 2015
A team of scientists and engineers have developed “The drinkable book”, a life saving tool that filters water and teaches proper sanitation and hygiene to those in the developing world. Each book is printed on technologically advanced filter paper capable of eliminating deadly waterborne diseases, as it is coated with silver nanoparticles, whose ions actively kill diseases like cholera, typhoid and E.coli. The pages cost only pennies to produce; each sheet from ‘the drinkable book’ is capable of giving someone in need up to 30 days worth of clean water, and features a paper supply that filters up-to 5000 liters.
