Drinking clean water from sewage: a nanomesh straw

There's a company called Seldon Technologies that is using nanotechnology in ways that certainly help the human condition.  Imagine being able to extract clean water from sewage, or a scummy pond or other bacteria-laden source.  
Think about the implications of that for places like Rwanda and Haiti, where clean water is scarce.
Forbes recently ran an article (here's a link: ) on Seldon detailing one of its products: a nanomesh filter that could solve a multitude of humanitarian issues, as well as some market potential for things like air, fuel and other filtration.
Another example of nanotechnology making our lives better.

  1. It is great to know that some people care enough to research and find the best water filtration to provide clean water to areas where clean water is unavailable
