Many families living in emerging countries or isolated areas must fight water-borne diseases every single day. Almost 2.2 billion people lack access to safely managed drinking water services, therefore one of the main Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations is to provide for universal access to water from 2030. ORISA® water filter is a low-cost sustainable water filtration solution to meet a social and ecological challenge faced by humanity, namely universal access to drinking water. It is a portable family-sized water filter for NGOs and local organizations that ensures a sustainable supply of drinking water. The filter is fitted with an ultrafiltration membrane system and a back-washing function, and is designed to last. The filter removes viruses and bacteria in order to fight biological contamination and water-borne diseases. The filter operates manually, with no power required, and no automatic use of chemicals.
