Researchers at The College of Wooster in Ohio have developed a new kind of sponge-like glass that can be used to clean polluted water. The smart material, called Obsorb, is placed in water where it binds with pollutants such as gasoline. Once the glass is full, Obsorb floats on the surface and can easily be skimmed off,  allowing for it to be re-used again and again.

This new technology is being developed by the Absorbent Materials company,  who are already testing the product in sites across the United States.
