Welcome back to learning about the incredible things that used water can do! Having reclaimed wastewater is something that we should all be aware of, as water is not something that we have an unending supply of. Making sure that we have enough water for ourselves and continue to preserve drinkable fresh water for those that come after us is something we should all at least think about time and again. Thankfully, reused wastewater has many different uses. Here are a few of them.
One of the most incredible things to me is that this technology has even been used in space since 2009. The International Space Station has been using a device to turn human waste into drinking water and oxygen for almost ten years now, which cuts down on the need to resupply so often saving us resources and money. While we may not be as classy as NASA with our equipment, the concept is the same. You have to admit, that’s pretty darn cool.
