In a cleaner #environment, it’s easier to heal.
#Mexico Cleans Environment, Note Medical Tourists: the Air
A Mexican company won Britain’s #Latam innovation award for its #air purification system. #BiomiTech beat out six other finalists.
Its system is four meters high and looks like a tree with a steel casing. Most noteworthy, it yields as much oxygen as 300 trees.
Due to using #micro-algae, it performs photosynthesis. That transform contaminants such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides into oxygen.
At busy crossroads and intersections where buses stop, there’s not enough room for 300 trees. But there is for this tower to do the work of 300 trees.
Mexico Cleans Environment, Note Medical Tourists: #Rice Hulls
A team of scientists from the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN) made utensils out of rice hulls. Especially relevant, they’re #edible and contribute to a cleaner environment.
Due to their short shelf life, rice hulls are traditionally used in Mexico to feed livestock. Hence the researchers slowed the hulls’s oxidation process. Then they turned the stabilized rice hull into highly nutritious marzipan and a tortilla chip-like product.
The development of the edible cutlery was the result of a trial and error process. Apart from the rice hulls the utensils contain water and a few other natural ingredients.
Mexico Cleans Environment, Note Medical Tourists: water into wine
And finally, a planned #aqueduct will carry treated #wastewater. it begins in Tijuana and flows to the Valle de Guadalupe. That’s near the municipality of Ensenada Baja California.
Notably, Northern Baja is Mexico’s largest #wine producer. Most noteworthy, wineries there have won accolades at national and international wine competitions.
The Valle de Guadalupe region currently has only one source of water. That’s the Guadalupe aquifer, which is overexploited.
The winemakers will foot the bill–US $1.5-billion. An Israeli company, Odis Asversa, will build the aqueduct.
It will send 1,000 liters of high-quality water per second. Furthermore, it will monitor both quantity and quality 24/7. If the water’s clean, it continues. If not, the system pumps it back.
A cleaner environment makes Mexico even more attractive. So do the #best dentists and doctors. To use ones we vetted, contact DocTours to arrange your appointments.
