According to the article, written by S. Kar, R.C. Bindal, S. Prabhakar, P.K. Tewari, K. Dasgupta, and D. Sathiyamoorthy of the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) in Mumbai, India, the trick to creating water systems for poorer areas is making them even cheaper than today's membrane bioreactors, etc.
The team said that nanostructured carbon tubes, hollow carbon fibers less than a billionth the thickness of a human hair, would make great filters because only the smallest particles, like simple water, would be able to pass through, while larger particles, including most bacteria and other pollutants, would be stopped, while flow rates remained very high with low power output.
