Clear Blue - the portable water filter
Organized by: Manisha Patel
Event Name: CGI U Commitments Challenge 2016
According to the World Health Organization, arsenic is one of the most dangerous metals found in drinking water world- wide. The consumption of such water causes serious health problems, especially in developing counties. This calls for a need of an inexpensive, portable, and easily applicable water filtration device which utilizes iron-oxide technology that can take in contaminated water, filter out metals and bacteria, and safely be drank out of- in a matter of seconds. The proposed social venture will produce and distribute an easy- to- carry water filter that people can take with them anywhere and utilize for safe drinking water whenever needed. This project is original and important because there isn’t an inexpensive portable device that can remove arsenic on the market, allowing it to be in the possession of many people.
