Resumen

One of the most alarming and worrisome problems in Mexico is the contamination of water with heavy metals. Several studies carried out, that water pollution has been increasing in different parts around the country. Our project seeks to create a viable, environmentally friendly and sustainable alternative to eliminate water polluting agents such as mercury, cadmium and lead, as well as generating an option for the use of organic waste derived from the growing demand for fruits that exists nowadays. Our project, also seeks to innovate a model for the decontamination of heavy metals from water, with the aim of providing a chance to the people most affected by this problem, which in this case are those with lower socioeconomic status, that do not have access to the purchase of filters or special equipment for the decontamination of heavy metals from water.
