ZeeWeed, illustrated above, is a low-energy solution for both cities and industries to filter out solids, bacteria, viruses and other pathogens in water. In a time when over half of U.S. states face water shortages and two-thirds of the world’s population is expected to live in water-scare conditions by 2025, it’s more important than ever to find innovative ways to treat and recycle wastewater.
