The Nanotechnology Miracle

How nanotechnology saved a contaminated lake in Peru

Shortly before its irrevocable, complete collapse, the Cascajo wetlands were rescued by Marino Morikawa, a young Peruvian-Japanese scientist who spent his childhood fishing in its waters. He developed a nanotechnology that will soon be used to restore other waters as well – among them the famous Lake Titicaca. Read More

    This solution to clean up a contaminated lake may be applied to cleaning air in our cities. Dirt particles are tiny and could be picked up electrostatically

    es admirable lo que una persona determinada puedo lograr, en un corto periodo de tiempo, relativamente, y me inspira a limpiar los lagos de mi país, Guatemala, en el cual hay unos casos muy serios, favor de ponerse en contacto conmigo, para solicitarle información y asesoría de métodos de bioremediacion

    How much is it to have this technology introduced in our country, the Philippines. I grew up in.Makati and would like to see Pasig River get its life back again...

    It was amazing work of Marino san and the entire team..
    How can I get more information about this Nanotechnology and the Biofiltraion for our lake or river in Indonesia..

    Looking forward to receiving from you..
    Thanks n Regards,

    Hi , Marino ,
    Rituparn from India , was impressed by your efforts and dedication. In India we have many contaminated water bodies of Importance which need immediate attention. I am greatly Interested in your work. Let me.know how I can contact you. Also is your method good for static water i.e lakes or for rivers also

    hello sir. This is for my report about the use of nanotechnology as a solution for water pollution. i would like to ask what are the nano-materials used and further explanation about the process . like the maintenance or something. It would be nice Sir if you would be able to answer me early. Thank you.
