This innovation addresses the inadequacies of current water treatment technologies, which are frequently not aligned with humanitarian objectives; resulting in unnecessarily expensive and sometimes ineffective relief.
Plate settling principles allow for relatively higher loading rates and consequentially a higher treated water production yield within a smaller footprint. By making the unit collapsible, setup times and transportation costs can also be reduced.
Added Value: Ultimately, larger volumes of water can be produced within SPHERE Standard water quality levels using a relatively low-cost and simple treatment process.
Innovation Phases Description:
Follow the rest of this innovations journey, as it deployed in Juba in South Sudan.View
The team make the long trip from Quebec City to Nairobi was to receive the Global Winner prize in the Drinking Water Applied Research category for the Project Innovation Awards-Development.View
The team are now approaching the end of our initial testing phase and are pleased to report good results.View
The project’s lead shares his thoughts on the rationale underpinning the use of inclined plate settling.View
Apart from the normal organising and planning that takes place at the start of any project, we have mainly been working towards the optimisation of the plate settler we are developing.View
