Xylem Water Filters

March 05, 2014 By: Kevin Category: General

MIT just came out last month with a paper that discusses how a piece of tree branch could be used as a very effective water filter.  Thought it might be a good Boy Scout experiment to see how easy and useful this might be.  Popular Mechanics and Popular Science magazines have both published articles about this that nicely summarize the paper.
