UK's G2O Water Technologies has reported securing its first commercial contract for the enhancement of water filtration membranes with graphene oxide.
The Company explains that the advantages of using graphene oxide lie in the enhancement of membrane performance, as it mitigates the effects of fouling one of the biggest challenges operators of membrane-based water filtration systems face. With a coating of graphene oxide, successfully developed and piloted by the company in the northwest of England in collaboration with Hydrasyst Limited, operators can improve operational efficiency, reduce energy consumption and decrease chemical usage. It is anticipated that this will extend the lifetime of the membranes, as well as significantly reduce the cost and environmental impact of water treatment.
This is a significant milestone for the company and the whole water sector. It’s the first commercially successful application of graphene oxide for water treatment, said Chris Wyres, CEO of G2O Technologies. The results of industrial trials with Hydrasyst validate the real-world advantages the solution delivers. We will be working closely with Hydrasyst to roll-out Nanopulse systems for a range of water treatment applications. We envisage that wide-scale deployment of this transformational solution can contribute to addressing the challenges of water scarcity and climate change.
Graphene oxide is toxic to humans. What mad man thought that this would be a good idea?
There has been studies that
There has been studies that show that inhaling GO or GNP particle may be a health hazard, but we do not know whether GO is 'toxic' as you suggest.
Surely this is a bad idea. This will affect humans as graphene oxide is toxic chemical. Can't believe someone thought this was a good idea. Let's see what happens in the future as cancers and other health issues increase!
If you do not know if it is toxic, why would you risk putting it in filters that will get into the water supply. If it is toxic by inhalation it would be logically toxic through ingestion.
Not to mention the possible environmental impact
If there was ever a reason
If there was ever a reason for buying bottled water then this is it.
Graphene Oxide is Poisonus for Humans
Graphene oxide is now well known to be Poisonous to men, women and children.
You seem to be wrapped up in this so-called Graphene oxide Technology.
