Freshwater is important for life but it is available in a very small fraction on the planet. This earth has almost 70% water but only 2.5% of water is pure and fresh. There are many reasons for it but the water pollution is one of the major reasons. Plastic pollution is the most dangerous form of water pollution. It is very bad for health and the environment. Many countries working to save water from plastic pollution but the Australian government found a very effective and easy way to save water from plastic pollution.
The new technology adopts by Australia is very easy. This technology is using to prevent the water from hazardous plastic. It is the best way to protect the water.
This technology is not much old. This technology was introduced this year when the government of Australia installed a filtration system in the Henley Reserve, Kwinana, Australia.
This way is more easy and adaptable for every country. Water pollution is a problem around the globe. Emerging economies already are in different crises due to environmental changes. This technology is very easy and safe for mankind.
As compare to other expensive ways to protect water this technology is very easy and cheap.
How Does this System Work?
This technology works in an easy way. A Huge net is supposed to place on the front of the drainage pipe which catches all the garbage and plastic in it and after this filtration, it pushes the clean water outside the net.
During the process when the net gets full of garbage and plastic, workers make it clean by lifting out from it. They work on it and fix them again for the same process. Workers throw the garbage in garbage trucks and send it for more processing of effective use of it.
Yes, This technology required manual involvement to handle and fix the process.
The Australian government has more clear plans about this technology they are working to install more system in other areas of the country.
Plastic is very harmed for human health and it is dangerous in water. Other countries are also following Australia and thinking to implement this technology.
