Students at the University of Virginia
have developed a new way
to purify water.
They say it could bring improved
water quality to millions of people
in the developing world.
They call it a MadiDrop.
Field testing began recently
in South Africa.
The laboratory where the MadiDrop
is made operates like a kitchen.
Workers add ingredients and mix,
weigh, press and bake.
What the workers are making
is a ceramic disc
that contains silver.
When the disc is dropped into water,
silver ions are released
to purify the water.
Ions are atoms that have
an electrical charge.
Testing at the University
of Virginia shows that the disc
produces clean, safe water.
Beeta Ehdaie studies at the
University of Virginia.
She says her work is not only
about making effective technology.
It is also about making solutions
for people in developing countries
who do not have many resources.
Why the name “MadiDrop”?
The word “madi” means water
in Tshivenda,
a language of Limpopo province
in South Africa.
There, 50 women run a factory
that makes water filters.
The university started the factory
last summer.
The women mix sawdust and clay
to make flowerpot-shaped filters
that they use to purify drinking water.
The water flows through the filters,
which trap bacteria and solid particles.
The factory sells the filters
to local families.
But the MadiDrop is smaller
and less expensive than the filters.
Over the next few months,
students will test the MadiDrop
in South Africa.
If the testing is successful,
the South African women
will make and sell the MadiDrops.
The goal is to expand to other
developing countries, and improve
millions of lives.
