Activated Carbon Towers - Carbon filtration (also known as charcoal filtration), which utilizes a process known as adsorption, is a particularly effective technique for chlorine removal. Pesticides, herbicides, and other organic contaminants (especially volatile organics) are also removed at this stage. Ultraviolet Light - The water passes through a special chamber which houses a large ultraviolet light source. This ultraviolet light acts as a powerful sterilizing agent. If any bacteria, viruses, or other microbiological contaminants are present in the water, the ultraviolet light at this particular wavelength destroys the genetic material within these organisms, eliminating the possibility of bacterial or viral reproduction and proliferation. The organisms quickly die and are captured and removed during the prefiltering before the reverse osmosis purification process. Reverse Osmosis - Osmosis is a naturally occurring process whereby water passes across a membrane due to a pressure differential between one side of the membrane and the other. (Drinkmore).

Eco friendly environment: Pollution is a very common problem which we all are aware of. The main reason which causes pollution is the smoke that is omitted from the car, factories and industries. There are three types of pollution namely water, air and land pollution and sadly we are the victim of all three of them. In contrast with the above problems, let’s discuss the importance as to why going eco- friendly is important in today’s world. Our planet is nearly dying because of the situation we have put it in. The ozone layer is damaged. In order to save our planet we need to promote self-sustainability and self-sufficiency. We can not only save the planet but also the animals of which some are going extinct because of global warming and the worse conditions the earth is facing by each passing day. Our purpose should be to promote a greener and healthier environment. Furthermore, in order to promote the very concept of eco-friendly we can always use eco-friendly products which include Hybrid Cars, Fuelless Generators, Solar Power Generator , and Eco-Friendly Air Conditioners etc.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
