No. 611: A car-mounted water purification system (September 11, 2012)

Metawater launched a car-mounted water purification system. A truck loaded with this system can create drinking water from turbid water and supply daily life water for about 3,700 people. In the initial stage, the company will ship the system to Kenya, Malawi, and Togo. The company was founded because of the merger between the water-related divisions of Fuji Electric and NGK Insulators. 

Because the truck carries a generator and the water purification system, it can purify water even in areas without electricity. The purification system uses a ceramic membrane for filtration, and can filter up to 75 tons of water per day. Because the membrane is ultrafine, it can eliminate bacterial and protozoa. This car-mounted system is priced at 35 million yen.
