Solar-powered gel filters enough clean water to meet daily needs

Researchers at Princeton University have developed the next generation of their solar absorber gel technology, a device that could be key to unlocking clean water access for people across the globe. The sponge-like gel is low-cost, easy-to-use, and requires only sunlight to filter pollutants such as heavy metals, oils, microplastics, and some bacteria from water, making it an alternative for off-grid water purification.
