Parched throats and parched lips: this is the distress Menon Laboratories seeks to address.
According to United Nations research that tracks the increasing scarcity of potable water, 1 in 9 individuals across our emerald green planet lack access to pure drinking water.
In the United States, 2.5 billion gallons of water are polluted each day due to oil and gas production, as reported by the World Health Organization and UNICEF. Visually speaking, that is two and a half billion milk jugs of contamination a day.
That is also the amount of water the global population drinks — each day.
Menon Laboratories, led by Latika Menon, is leveraging the futuristic capabilities of nanotubes to filter impurities and make safe the sips we take.
And, people are taking notice. The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) has recently announced that Menon Laboratories will receive up to $150,000 to test its pioneering filtration membrane at the Massachusetts Alternative Septic System Testing Center in Barnstable County.
Congratulations, Menon Labs, and thank you MassCEC for investing resources in discoveries that aim to keep the world’s water clean.
