This is the clay water purifier also known as ceramic pot-type water filter (CPF). This technology is developed by the Department of Science and Technology – Industrial Technology Development Institute (DOST-ITDI) to purify drinking waters.
This water purifier is specially formulated with red clay coated with nano anti-microbial agents that purifies water from its natural sources such as deep well, ponds, spring, etc., making it safe for human consumption.
The development of this technology was inspired to utilize the locally available materials in the country and to produce an affordable water purifier available for the public. Congrats to DOST-ITDI for this innovation.
This technology was also featured in the National Science and Technology Week held at the SMX Convention Center in SM Mall of Asia last 10-14 July 2012.
