Two fourth-year ESO students from the Thau school in Barcelona have designed a piece with a 3D printer to reduce the water pressure in the taps and which saves the educational center 1,124 liters per day.
The students are Pau Olivares and Pol Romans, who last year, in the fourth year of ESO, designed the piece in the entrepreneurship subject, sources from the educational center reported this Friday. With this solution, the school has indicated that in one course it will be able to save 196,770 liters, an amount equivalent to filling a swimming pool 8 meters deep.
The piece is an "easy to apply, adjustable, resistant and economical solution" to be built at school, the educational center has indicated. In times of drought, it can be a very valid measure that can perfectly be emulated to avoid wasting water.
The school, which has stated that it is "committed to environmental awareness and innovation", has indicated that it is progressively implementing the solution within its facilities.
