Globally, more than 2 billion people lack on-premise access to clean drinking water. Of these 2 billion, more than 700 million people must either travel more than 30 minutes to collect clean water; take water from unprotected wells; or use untreated surface water from lakes, rivers, and streams.
Faircap, a small filter that immediately purifies water without the use of chemicals, helps to solve this problem. Faircap screws into plastic bottles and enables a user to take water from any source and drink it. The filters are affordable, can be used hundreds of times, and don’t require an energy source, making them highly practical.
Faircap uses cutting-edge technologies such as filtration membranes, nanomaterials, and chemical-absorbing fibers to remove pathogens such as bacteria, protozoa, cysts, and even viruses. Its small-form design helps maintain an optimal flow rate as water moves through the filter, providing a comfortable user experience.
