Ceramic Water Filtration Provides an Inexpensive Solution to Clean Water in Rural Mexico

Story at-a-glance -

  • I am very proud of our involvement with CATIS-Mexico, which is working to provide pure water to rural areas in Mexico
  • The filters used by CATIS-Mexico are made in a simple hand mold using locally available clay and burn-out material (such as waste sawdust)
  • One CATIS filter produces about 24 liters of water a day, requires little maintenance, and lasts two to three years.
  • The next phase of these simple, inexpensive filters incorporates biochar – a charcoal that absorbs heavy metals
  • This combination unit helps to remove pathogens along with dangerous components in the water like arsenic and fluoride
