The process can efficiently remove heavy metals from water

A new process for removing mercury and other heavy metals from water has been developed by scientists at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden.

The method uses a platinum plate which binds heavy metals to it. Through an electrochemical process it can draw mercury and other metals out of water to form an alloy of the two, removing the mercury contamination.
