Jeff Kart of Forbes reports about a new lead filtration system.
- MIT scientists are using yeast, a byproduct from beer making, to filter out high concentrations of lead from drinking water with a process called biosorption.
- Biosorption, a scientific solution that has been known for decades, uses biological material to filter out heavy metals from water.
- Initial trials at MIT show that using yeast in biosorption works well in removing lead, but a system would have to be made to test it out on a larger level.
