Clean Drinking Water For Bangladesh Villagers

14th December 2018

Innovative Australian water treatment technology improves the health and lives of rural villagers in Bangladesh

  • Bangladesh Government committed to the removal of arsenic and other contaminants from ground water
  • Infinite Water pilot plant provides drinking water that exceeds World Health Organisation (“WHO”) standards
  • Potential roll out of water treatment solutions to rural populations within Bangladesh and multiple countries across the region

Mr Saifur Rahman, DPHE Superintending Engineer said, “We are working closely with Infinite Water to treat contaminated groundwater to provide safe, clean drinking water in rural Bangladesh, especially in the south western areas. The early results of catalytic oxidation based water treatment are very positive and we feel that there is a wide range of future applications for this technology in our country.”

David Marquard, Director Strategy & Special Projects at Infinite Water, said: “Our ability to provide clean, safe water reliably and at low cost is changing lives. I could see this in the heartfelt thank you that Jakea Sultana, an Alampur Village year 10 student, gave me in a video call earlier this week. We are excited to expand the program across Bangladesh and into other regional countries. The success of the Meherpur WTP is an additional proof point for our game changing, and life changing, HYDROXON™ technology.”
