The Drinkable Book was developed by engineers from the University of Virginia and Carnegie Mellon, and it is designed to educate people on how to purify water, and the paper inside the book is used to clean water.
The books is printed on advanced filter paper which is capable of killing a range of waterborne diseases like Cholera, Typhoid and E.Coli, and once the water is filtered it is 99.9 percent pure, which is similar to normal drinking water.
This filter paper will revolutionize water purification. It costs only pennies to produce, making it by far the cheapest option on the market. Each filter is capable of giving someone up to 30 days worth of clean water, and each book is capable of providing someone with clean water for up to 4 years.
Once water is passed through the filter, bacteria count is reduced by over 99.99%, making the filtered water comparable to tap water in the United States of America.
