Making Clean Water with a Spark of Electricity | Korneel Rabaey | TEDxBrussels

Wednesday, June 8, 2016 - 13:19

Electrify the world! You may spontaneously think about electric cars, however electricity can do so much more. We can use it to feed bacteria that convert carbon dioxide from a chimney to valuable products. We can replace nasty chemicals used to combat sewer corrosion in your own neighborhood, recover chemicals considered lost in wastewater and create safe water in Indian slums. As electricity increasingly finds sustainable sources, we should take this as an opportunity to create a greener chemical and water sector.
