Arsenic Poisoning and the Kanchan Arsenic Filter

Tens of millions of people in Asia are affected by arsenic contaminated groundwater. A partnership between MIT and ENPHO, a Nepali environmental NGO, have invented and widely disseminated the Kanchan Arsenic Filter in Nepal. New work is taking this filter to Bangladesh and Cambodia. This video shows the successful implementation of the Kanchan with financial support from Global Water Trust.

Geat work.

I I work for a company named Ion Power which is owned by the son of the inventor of Nafion. If I may suggest you one may also want to take a look at the efforts by a company called New Life International. They use a water purification system that can clean up to 1000 gallons of water per day and runs off of a single car battery using our Nafion membranes. If anyone would like to find out more information about our company, products or developements or would just like to receive our news letters please email us at: newsletter@ion-power.com
