% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A team of scientists at Washington University has developed a technique for using sheets of graphene oxide to obtain drinkable water using sunlight; The technique involves heating dirty water to a boil – creating purified steam that can be collected and safely consumed.

The team has devised a method of heat localization using bilayered biofoam composed of bacterial nanocellulose (BNC) and reduced graphene oxide (RGO). The bilayer structure was created by growing Gluconacetobacter hansenii bacteria in the presence of graphene oxide flakes.
