    Washit is a concept design for one unit that washes both a person and their laundry simultaneously using the same water.

    The EcoCool system was designed to filter and reuse grey water to cool interior spaces and hydrate the planter at the bottom of the unit. Before being deposited in the planter, water passes through a series of filters disguised as wall tiles that are filled with a filtering mixture of sand and marble. Designer: Ardavan Mirhosseini

    Water collected from your shower and used to wash your clothes.

    MIT researchers have developed a oil and water separation technique using magnets that would allow the oil to be recovered to help offset the costs of the cleanup operation.

    Dutch researchers have developed the EWICON, a bladeless wind turbine with no moving parts that produces electricity by pushing charged water droplets into the wind.

    The University of Engineering and Technology and MAYO-DRAFT FCB have constructed an advertising billboard that converts moisture from humid desert air into drinkable water.

    It's no secret that hundreds of millions of people around the world have little or no access to drinkable water. That's where the low-cost DrinkPure filter comes in. It is simply screwed onto the top of an existing bottle, and can purify approximately one liter (34 fl oz) of water per minute.

    HydroICE engine uses solar energy to heat oil to 400-700 degrees. The oil is then injected into the combustion chamber (in the same way gasoline is injected in a conventional ICE) and a few droplets of water are introduced. Upon contact with the oil, the water turns to steam and the expansion drives the piston. The oil and steam is recaptured and separated to be returned to the closed loop system. A 31cc 2-stroke gas engine has already been converted for testing.

    Drinking recycled urine may be the stuff of <em>Dune</em> novels, but officials in Santa Clara County in the heart of Silicon Valley are hoping its new high-tech purification plant will help residents get past the ick factor and eventually allow treated wastewater to flow through their faucets.

    A team of Taiwanese researchers is to demonstrate a method of treating sewage using old CDs. The disks are used as a platform to grow nanorods of photocatalyst zinc oxide. By spinning the disks, sewage water spreads into a thin layer through which light can pass, exciting the nanorods into action.
