The inclined Plate Settler – Juba deployment
Organisation: Université Laval
Partners: Oxfam GB (Aquaplus Ltd & RedR-India)
Location: Quebec, Canada and Juba, South Sudan
Type of grant: WASH
A novel water treatment kit will improve water supply whilst increasing its cost-effectiveness by a factor of 20.
What humanitarian need is being addressed?
This project addresses the inadequacies of current water treatment technologies, which are not aligned with humanitarian objectives; resulting in expensive and sometimes ineffective relief.
What is the innovative solution and how will it improve existing humanitarian practice?
The Inclined Plate Settler will provide a fit-for-purpose water treatment technology improving the level of service provided in a cost-effective manner.
What materials or research outputs are likely to be produced?’
We will be drafting one manuscript intended for a peer-reviewed publication as well as the dissemination of the final results in an appropriate conference (e.g. WEDC Conference 2016). Through these outputs we hope to share documented evidence from the field deployment of the Inclined Plate Settler.
