Clean wa­ter

Bulletin - - Contents -

More than two bil­lion peo­ple do not have ac­cess to clean drink­ing wa­ter. DE­VEL­OP­MENT AID A Swiss in­no­va­tion can help: The Drinkpure por­ta­ble wa­ter fil­ter de­vel­oped by Zurich-based start-up No­vamem uses nan­otech­nol­ogy to re­move up to 99 per­cent of pathogens as well as dis­col­oration and un­pleas­ant smells from wa­ter. The fil­ter screws onto PET bot­tles and wa­ter faucets alike and is a true life-saver in dis­as­ter ar­eas and de­vel­op­ing coun­tries.
