The Secrets of Drinking Water – How to Combat Polyethylene Terephthalate

Water problem addressed: Too dirty

Summary: Our research started from the realisation that the yearly growth in discarded polyethylene terephthalate bottles combined with misbeliefs about tap water will lead to an ecological catastrophe. We have proven the negative characteristics of PET in our experiments. We monitored the journey of water and its treatment in Budapest from the Danube to the consumers and ascertained its excellent quality. We proposed four easily implementable ways to diminish the dumping of used PET into the environment.
