A Clean Bath From the University of Bath: 3D Printing the Newest Water Purification System

A Clean Bath From the University of Bath: 3D Printing the Newest Water Purification System

This year, I received a compost tumbler for my birthday. Perhaps that seems to you like an odd birthday present, but I was thrilled, because now I can turn my kitchen scraps into lovely organic fertilizer to make my garden soil healthy and help me grow more food (and more kitchen scraps, ultimately). It’s pretty […]

The Importance of Continuing Development of 3D Printing Techniques in Membrane Fabrication

The Importance of Continuing Development of 3D Printing Techniques in Membrane Fabrication

We know that 3D printing has many uses in a variety of fields, from medical to education to artwork; it can create almost any geometrically complex shape you can dream of, in a range of materials. But one application for 3D printing that is still relatively new is its use in separation membrane engineering. Researchers at […]

3D Printing Helps to Save Lives Threatened by Landslides

It is becoming increasingly challenging to discover areas in which 3D printing is not making a contribution. In yet another demonstration of the technology’s capacity to assist in human efforts, Dr. Timothy Whitehead of De Montfort University in Leicester has put it to use in support of a project designed to help reduce loss of […]

GE & DOE Research: Might 3D Printed Turbines Unlock Secret to Affordable Desalination of Ocean Water?

GE & DOE Research: Might 3D Printed Turbines Unlock Secret to Affordable Desalination of Ocean Water?

In a new project that sounds extremely futuristic, but completely normal coming from GE and their Global Research Center in upstate New York, they will be using 3D printed turbines in research and development for an intricate process that could make desalination of saltwater truly feasible, finally unlocking the key to using the vast amount of […]

Project Aquero is Using 3D Printing to Pull Drinkable Water from Thin Air

Project Aquero is Using 3D Printing to Pull Drinkable Water from Thin Air

Only about 2.5% of the water on our planet is actually drinkable fresh water, and of that water less than half is actually safe for us to consume. A lack of clean and drinkable water isn’t just a problem faced by those who live in arid desert regions; there are many areas of the world where […]

3D Printed Aquapura Filters Saltwater: Kickstarter Campaign Aims to End World’s Fresh Water Shortage

3D Printed Aquapura Filters Saltwater: Kickstarter Campaign Aims to End World’s Fresh Water Shortage

Frederick Janson plans to use 3D printing in facing one of the oldest and biggest challenges of the world: providing more fresh drinking water to the masses. With over 98% of the world’s water in the form of saltwater, the obvious plan of attack is in converting that to fresh water. How difficult could it […]

Turning First World Trash Into a Third World Water Purifier Via 3D Printing

Most likely if you are reading this story, you have relatively easy access to clean drinking water. Whether this encompasses walking a few steps to the nearest sink, or opening the fridge, water is taken for granted by those living in the developed world. Unfortunately this is not the case for an approximate 783 million peope […]
