Project Title & Description
Electrochemical Arsenic Remediaton in Bangladesh
Arsenic in drinking water is a major public health problem threatening the lives of over 140 million people worldwide. Primary drinking water supplies are contaminated in many areas globally. Phase I of this project demonstrated that ElectroCoagulation EC technology can operate effectively, cheaply, and efficiently enough to be successful in a for-profit community center model. The current grant is to move the prototype from a laboratory scale to a working pilot project providing sustainable clean water with full cost recovery to a village in Bangladesh.
