Water Purifier

Water issue adressed: Too dirty
National winners demonstrating their project: water purifier

The Water Purifier combines purification processes in Chemistry, radiation and electrical effects on organisms in Physics to purify water. The water purifier has filtering stage where the sediments, (chloride) odour, colour, heavy and toxic compounds are removed, followed by the current passing electrode and UV stages where disinfection of the water from microbes takes place. The water is then re-filtered with a 1┬Ám filter to remove the dead microbes to make the water is safe for consumption.
Water samples contaminated with heavy metals, pathogens and other contaminants which passed through the water purifier, came out pure and safe for potable uses. The device is cost effective and efficient and if scaled up, could make potable water available to all.

This is how I came up with the idea for this project:

As Science students, we tried to combine purification processes in Chemistry and radiation and electrical effects on organisms in Physics to purify water
