The CuO2 GANS based water purification system presented in this report extends the results of experiments conducted in Ghana. The goal is to create an efficient water purification system which is easy to use even under an adverse condition with limited understanding of Plasma Science and Technology. This study was conducted in Bangladesh, where the consumption of contaminated water often leads to many bacteria- and virus-based conditions and stomach problems.
The approach is to create a method to easily purify water using GANS material without directly handling it. It is particularly relevant where the sufficient expertise of GANS has yet to develop and/or urgency of the situation demands an easily manageable implementation.
Portability can become an important consideration under such circumstances.
The results from Ghana indicate that the CuO2 GANS is very effective in dealing with bacteria, viruses, various organic and metallic impurities.
We use a small glass sphere (about the size of a ping-pong ball, as in Figure 1) with a very small amount of CuO2 GANS in it. The ball hangs from the top on a thin, Nanocoated copper wire, inside an 18-liter container (Figure 2). The container has a tap at 70% mark from the top of it. The water available from city water supply is first poured in the bucket.
The water is ready for consumption after letting the water sit for 12 to 24 hours for the CuO2 field operation and sedimentation to take effect. The tap on the bucket can then be used to get the purified water out. Given the impurity level of the water in the locality, the bucket is cleaned after an interval of 3 to 4 months.
Similar to direct contact CuO2. the situation, the presence of sediments does not impact the taste of the water because the sphere with GANS maintains the field.
One of the important aspects of this design is that the ball can be used as a separate reusable unit. A 42mm ball is portable and the user need not to have any knowledge of GANS or plasma field operation to use it. Just ball alone is an independent aspect of this approach. The spherical shape is not essential and other types of glass containers can be used where such glass spheres are unavailable.Observations
The baseline for this observation is the use of pure GANS without any containment to purify the water. In addition to the glass sphere, plastic containers were also tested to see the change in water taste. We decided to go with glass sphere after a month of observation to ascertain any of the five people detected any change in the taste of the water. The plastic versions of the balls used were not as effective in terms of plasma field transparency. Our experience in other areas of plasma science applications also indicated that glass is much superior to other materials. In fact, we were unable to detect any difference in water’s taste when in direct contact with GANS and GANS in glass containment. The results are based on the observation of five people over a period of one month.
Our usual approach is to use tap water as the starting point. After purification, the water acquires a sweet taste to it, which is similar to good spring water. It tastes significantly better than any bottled water one can obtain from any of the local markets. We have discovered a surprising aspect of this process: the purified water from one of the major river tastes tangibly better than purified tap water, although the taste of river water is much worse than tap water at the beginning.
This approach has been in use for over a year using the same ball and the number of people using and remarking on the taste of the water is now in the range of several thousand.
