Solar Purification Could Provide Clean Water in Rural India

Rural India could soon have accessible, clean drinking water for the first time ever thanks to a new solar technology.

Researchers at the University of Edinburgh have designed a water purification system that harnesses the sun’s energy to decontaminate polluted water.

According to UNICEF, millions of people in India die every year from diseases like diarrhea and pneumonia related to contaminated water, including 600,000 children.
