Vermont's Seldon Labs wants to keep soldiers' water pure

Abstract:
A research lab here in the Green Mountain State has won a contract from the U.S. Air Force to develop a water filter that uses carbon nanotubes to stick it to pollutants. Founded only 16 months ago, Seldon Laboratories LLC has already delivered a prototype filter that skewers biological pathogens as a soldier gulps water into his mouth. Next up is a $2 million contract to make an improved version that blocks poisons, debris and other pollutants, resulting in water pure enough to use for medical purposes right on the battlefield.
