Developed nanofiber filter to remove 99.9% of dangerous particles like bacteria from waterWhoa, Really?
"With support from SBIR funding from Johnson Space Center, Argonide Corporation, of Sanford, Florida, tested and developed its proprietary nanofiber water filter media. Capable of removing more than 99.99 percent of dangerous particles like bacteria, viruses, and parasites, the media was incorporated into the company's commercial NanoCeram water filter, a 2002 "R&D; 100" award winner and 2005 inductee into the Space Foundation's Space Technology Hall of Fame. In addition to its drinking water filters, Argonide now produces large-scale nanofiber filters used for industrial and municipal water purification."
