Water purifier powers itself

  • Project Lead(s): Timothy Muttoo

    A groundbreaking water purification device that powers itself by producing electricity from any source of flowing water has been created through a partnership between H2O4ALL and Formarum, a Canadian engineering company.  Based on conventional copper–silver ionization, the technology needs no external power source and can automatically adjust the disinfection rate required – both features being of great importance in regions lacking reliable electricity sources and technical expertise.  The technology can also develop economic growth within communities by creating power for other essential needs.
