Innovate For Refugees 2017

Description

NCTech_NCfilters are off-grid affordable water filters that are simple to be installed in refugee tents and rural areas. Through the utilization of nanotechnology, we were able to develop our miracle nano-fillers from waste materials that are locally available. Such nano-fillers have the ability to swell and decrease the pore sizes of filter membranes. Thus, upon its addition to membranes constructed from the simple waste materials, such membranes could convert filthy water to pure water that is suitable for healthy drinking
