Feedback form is now closed.
According to the United Nations, 2.3 billion people do not have access to safe water. This is a problem found almost exclusively in developing nations that can affect health, energy and agricultural production, education, and gender equality. Four methods that are often examined as ways to provide clean water are: Ceramic Filtration, Slow Sand Filtration, Solar-Disinfection, and Chlorination. Each of these has both positive and negative aspects. After extensive literature review and conducting interviews, it can be determined that the best method of water purification in third-world countries is a multi-barrier approach that uses one or more of these methods.
