Safe Water

Within the geographical situation that people live in Jhabua and given problems of electricity and roads, we need to think of technologies which can be easily maintained and used. Also, those which can easily connect with people’s culture

With these in mind, INREM has developed a earthen pot filter which uses Activated Alumina (AA) for fluoride removal and Zero-B as a disinfectant. We use 3 kgs of AA per filter.

INREM has specially designed and produced a micro-filter for this purpose. This micro-filter allows a flow of water at 8 litres per hour and is suited for a specific AA based filter.
