Cactus Mucilage for Various Water Filtration Applications

This portable system effectively removes arsenic and bacteria such as Escherichia coli and Bacillus cereus from water. Further, when in contact with oil, an aggregate is formed and remains afloat, making the oil spill clean-up process easier. This natural extract can also be fabricated into a nanofibrous material via electrospinning. The nanofibers produced are nonwoven, have high surface areas, and exhibit a porosity that is ideal for the filtration of bacteria, arsenic and heavy metals from water. These inventions are non-toxic, sustainable, and biodegradable. They will be useful in numerous applications including water purification and environmental clean-up efforts.
