Marino Morikawa, a Peruvian scientist with a Ph.D. in Environmental Science and a professor in Japan, returned to your country, Peru, in a rush, to decontaminate a small pond from his childhood with the application of nanotechnology techniques. To save the El Cascajo lagoon, in Huaral, where Morikawa fished, with your father, before it was totally contaminated and silted, Morikawa abandonou aTsukuba University, in Japan and, together with volunteers from the region andusing handmade materials that were in the affected area, in only 15 days managed to save El Cascajo from destruction.
Stories such as those by Marino Morikawa show us that there are environmental solutions within our reach even to decontaminate lakes as large as Titicaca, for example.
What is the process to decontaminate ponds with nanotechnology?
looks strange but, for this process to work, Morikawa injected a continuous flow of microbubbles into the pond 10 a thousand times smaller than the bubbles in a soda.
These nanobubbles have positive and negative ions which generate a high concentration of energy – the bacteria that are in the liquid medium adhere to the air nanobubbles and become trapped in them. With this process, bacteria lose mobility, stop feeding and self-destruct.
This is a process that forces bacteria to demolecularize and die, explicou Morikawa.
The El Cascajo lagoon was decontaminated in 15 days of constant work, with the help of local volunteers. The birds and fish have already returned to the lake and now it is necessary that the population living on its banks maintain the necessary care for its preservation.
Decontaminate or Titicaca Scientist
With the victory in the decontamination of the El Cascajo lagoon, Morikawa formed a company, a Nanoplus 7. to work in peru, your home country. The ambition is to decontaminate the famous lake that runs through two countries, Peru and Bolivia. No moment, a large amount of organic material dumped through municipal waste is saturating the lake, taking away its natural quality, and the possibility of life on the lake. Reason that makes Marino, e a Nanoplus 7 they want to apply technology there and rescue life on the lake. His experience gained prominence even inTEDx Talks lectures.
