Producing Clean Drinking Water For All

This technology has the impact to save tens of millions of lives (if not hundreds) around the world.

A company that goes by the name of Water Sheer has produced a simple yet inexpensive technology that may enable hikers, soldiers and those living near polluted rivers to quench their thirst from unhealthy water sources.

(Israel 21st Century) "Above everything else, the product we've developed is going to save lives," explained Yossi Sandak, the CEO of Watersheer, the Israeli company which has developed the Sulis PPS. "Over 1.6 million children under the age of five die each year in the undeveloped world from drinking untreated water. What we have is a solution to reduce death in the world that is not a medical solution, but simply providing people with clean drinking water."

The Sulis unit is lightweight and small (10 grams, 2.7 Inches / 7 cm) and is designed to fit onto most universal bottles. According to Sandak's partner, Ron Shani, the founder, chairman and vice president of Watersheer's R&D division, the Sulis system treats water from upper sources containing organic, biological and chemical contaminates.

This amazing product costs about as much as "a large coffee and cake at Starbucks," according to Sandak making it affordable to even the poorest of nations. Although they still have to do some more rounds of testing in order to secure government approval (for the government that is), this product will be available to the public later on this summer in June.
