To provide cleaner water, this technology could be combined with a photocatalytic treatment. The effect of ultrafine particles of rubber (nanorubber) on the filtration rate was also investigated; however, they adversely affected the filtration rate, unlike crumb rubber. 5 to 5 mm were selected for the filtration column. The sizes were determined by sieve analysis using ASTM method 136-01. The density of the crumb rubber is 1130 kg/ml. 1. The filtration column was constructed from polytetrafluoroethylene, to provide a reasonably strong transparent and nonsticky surface.

Open sewers increase the risk of contamination of various pathogenic agents. The major sources of contamination include industrial waste; agriculture and domestic wastes; and discharge of waste from the industries of manufacturing, power generation, mining, textiles, and construction sites. Most of the mortality and morbidity in developing countries is associated with infection agents, causing cholera, dysentery, typhoid, paratyphoid, scabies, yaws, skin ulcers, and trachoma. Many insects breed in water and cause malaria, dengue, yellow fever, and onchocerciasis (river blindness).
