Washington. There is a severe shortage of clean drinking water around the world. In such a situation, American scientists have prepared a special type of Hydrogel Tablet. This tablet will make the water of rivers and ponds drinkable within an hour. Scientists claim that this tablet makes water up to 99.9 percent bacteria-free.
Scientists from the University of Texas at Austin, USA, have prepared this Hydrogel Tablet. Scientists say, 'Usually, water is boiled and drunk to make it bacteria-free. It takes both time and energy, but with the new hydrogel tablet, it is easy to make water drinkable.
According to the scientists, 'This hydrogel tablet has to be put in a container filled with river or pond water. The water will become 99.9 percent bacteria-free after one hour of tablet administration. After an hour, you can take this tablet out of the water.No chemical will be present in the water.
Researchers say, 'After reaching the water, this tablet generates hydrogen peroxide. Which together with the carbon particle kills the bacteria. It has been claimed in research that it does not make any such chemical or by-product in the water that can harm humans.
Researchers Guihua Yu says, 'Hydro water tablet will prove to be a game-changer in reducing the shortage of clean water worldwide. It will make a big difference because it is the easiest to use.
The research team says, 'The team is working to make hydrogel tablets available to the people. Apart from this, it is also being explored how to make it better and eliminate the virus along with different types of bacteria.
