» sustainable water purification
Most water purification solutions employed by developed countries rely on easy access to cheap electricity, and are supported by a sophisticated waste treatment infrastructure. If one attempts to apply these solutions under developing country conditions, water treatment can actually do more harm than good –creating toxic wastes, re-polluting water sources and demanding an unsustainable amount of scarce electricity. Access Bop believes the answer lies in low-pressure, renewable-energy-powered nanotechnology. Our network of cutting-edge, patent-holding partners, supported by teams of expert engineers and technicians, have among them with 30+ yrs of real-world water and bottling plant experience in BoP markets in Asia and Africa. They know how to implement for real-world conditions, where source water is scarce, power may be nonexistent, waste treatment infrastructure is unreliable and local technology education may not support effective maintenance of temperamental or complex machinery.
