The article reports on the planned collaboration of Nano-Terra and Pentair for the creation of new test solutions for water treatment. Under the agreement, Nano-Terra will use its laboratories to conduct research while Pentair is in charge of field testing. Nano-Terra, which uses technology to process materials at the nanometer scale to make nover surfaces and materials, stated that it can develop filtration membranes that can remove bacteria from drinking water or industrial chemicals.
