●Contaminated water made safe thanks to new invention
Filed under: BBC, HEALTH, LINKS, RADIO, SCIENCE, UPDATE
I heard about this amazing bottle in an interview on the BBC World radio the other day with the inventor, Michael Prichard.
He is the genius that created a bottle that makes contaminated water safe to drink.
He had calculated that it is cheaper and quicker to air drop these bottles into disaster areas than the cost and logistical problems of getting bottled water to the survivors.
The number of bottled water per person for 30 days is a staggering number – compared to having one lifesaver bottle per person.
“I developed the LIFESAVER after I saw the tragic waste of life and serious problems caused by the lack of safe drinking water in the wake of the tsunami in December 2004 and then again the following year on August 29, 2005 when Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana. I could not believe it. I really felt that something had to be done. It took a little while and some very frustrating prototypes but eventually I did it…….”
