DESCRIPTION

[OS-CF-16] This session will look at experiments with low cost water purification technologies such as activated carbon filters, sand filters, reed bed filters, anaerobic digestion that use and existing, natural processes and have harnessed them for application in rural areas and informal settlements. Water treatment is often both a costly, energy consuming process and one that is centrally managed. What positive experiences exist with low cost technologies and how can these be scaled up?
