Solar Purifier Creates its Own Disinfectant from Water and Sunlight

Cleaner water made by the sun? Xiaolin Zheng and her team at Stanford have created a way to purify water using sunlight and water to make hydrogen peroxide, a powerful antiseptic. "Ours is an unassisted system," Shi says, "It requires zero energy input and only light, water and oxygen to work.” Although the purifier needs more work before it can be used outside of a lab, Zheng and her team are confident that hikers will one day be able to drink water worry-free! 

Solar Project Helps Provide Electricity to Students Around the World

The project was done in collaboration with We Share Solar, a Berkeley-based education program designed to teach students about green energy sources. The “suitcases”—small solar-powered generators—that the students built were then sent to power an all-girls school in Kenya!
