A Sphagnum Solution for Safe Water
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences
Region:Vancouver Island
City:Saanichton, BC
School:Stelly's Secondary School
Abstract:I attempted to apply Sphagnum moss as a reusable heavy metal filter, and I was successful. Not only is it very effective at removing most poisonous metals, its reusability, done simply by placing it in an acidic solution, makes it ideal for poor effected families.
