This Gemstone research team is working with the University of Maryland Solar Decathlon team to develop a sustainable water filtration system that can be implemented in any new residential house being constructed. The goal for the system is to achieve net-positive water usage through a complex filtration system that incorporates greywater recycling and rainwater harvesting. This system distinguishes itself from other filtration systems by using strictly non-chemical filtration methods, thus increasing its environmental friendliness.
