During group #1’s presentation, Yukiko mentioned the fact that 70% of china’s rivers are polluted. This made me think of a TED video that I came across in 2009 on an innovative water filtration device called LifeSaver.
You have to watch this video to see that there is hope for countries such as China to provide clean water for its people. I do acknowledge that this device at the time in 2009 was made specifically for disaster recovery (Katrina Disaster) but since technology evolves quickly, I would not be surprised to see a second generation of LifeSaver that would provide a more permanent and sustainable solution. Has anyone heard of this company or its latest developments??
