GEAR 's research projects

Transportable Water Purification System

This water purification system will be designed with two main focuses. The first focus is the water purification system’s ability to produce enough water for a large group during extended stay trips in backcountry areas where there is no clean water. The second focus of this system is its use in communities around the world where there is no access to clean water and the means to purify it.
