Researchers from Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic, use plasma to remove microorganisms and chemical residues from water

Researchers from the Faculty of Science MU participated in the development of a new technology for water purification using low-temperature plasma. The device can remove chemical residues such as estrogens from contraceptive products and kill pathogenic microorganisms such as cyanobacteria and bacteria. An investor is now being sought who could turn the technology into a marketable product. According to the developers of the device, operation of the equipment is relatively cheap and production costs could be in the order of tens to hundreds of thousands of crowns, depending on its size; thus, the technology would be relatively affordable for customers.
