Researchers at Princeton University have found a way to clean particles from water by injecting carbon dioxide into a water channel. The gas changes the water's chemistry, which causes particles to move to one side of the water depending on their chemical charge. By taking advantage of the motion, the researchers can split the stream of water and filter out suspended particles. (Graphics courtesy of the researchers, Princeton University)
Researchers in the lab of Howard Stone have reported a technique for using carbon dioxide in a low-cost water treatment system.
