New material removes water pollutants using solar energy

Scientists have developed a new non-toxic material that uses solar energy to degrade harmful synthetic dye pollutants which are released at a rate of nearly 300,000 tonnes a year into the world's water.The novel, non-hazardous photo-catalytic material developed researchers at Swansea University adsorbs more than 90 per cent of the dye.Having removed the harmful dyes, the catalyst may simply be filtered from the cleaned water and reused.
