3D printable seaweed-derived material adsorbs pollutants with 94% efficiency

Researchers in Italy have developed a 3D printable recycled material that can actively cut pollutants in air and wastewater. Like the more expensive activated carbon, the new 3D printable material can capture particulate matter, and could be used in water filtration systems. Activated carbon, sometimes known as activated charcoal, is a form of carbon whose low-volume pores give it a high level of adsorption—adsorption being the process of holding molecules on a thin surface film, different to absorption , which involves the entire volume of a material. This form of carbon has many uses, including the treatment of poisoning […]
