Use of Ceramic Water Filters in Cambodia Ceramic filter pilot projects (2002-2006) in Cambodia have yielded promising results that suggest these interventions can be effective in improving drinking water quality and can contribute to substantial health gains in populations using them.
Production and dissemination of Ceramic Water Purifiers in Cambodia In Cambodia, nearly two million rural households do not have access to safe, potable water. While boiling water helps reduce exposure to water-borne diseases, the indoor air pollution created by wood fires causes serious respiratory and heart problems, especially for children.
Ceramic water filters have proven to be tremendously effective in reducing the exposure of users to contaminated water, and the incidence diarrhea over an extended period of time (Brown and Sobsey, 2006). Field trials of the effectiveness of ceramic water filters in Cambodia over time showed a 46% reduction in diarrheal disease between filter ...
Mar 19, 2019 The ceramic water purifier (CWP) is an emerging point-of-use water treatment technology that is made locally in Cambodia and in several other developing countries based on a design originally developed in Latin America in the 1980s.
Hydrologic CWPs are manufactured in Cambodia using locally available resources and skills. When filled with untreated water, the CWP percolates water through the ceramic pot by gravity filtration at a typical rate of 1-3 liters per hour. Bacteria down to 0.2m are physically blocked and also killed by the silver.
The toll of unsafe water. In Cambodia, untreated water and poor sanitation cause an estimated 10 million cases of diarrhea and 10,000 deaths each year, mostly in rural areas among children under the age of five.Diarrhea and other waterborne diseases impose a heavy economic burden due to healthcare expenses, lost labor productivity, and missed school days for children.

Cambodia Access to clean water through ceramic purifiers Project-Portrait. This project addresses the problem of safe drinking water by constructing and disseminating ceramic water purifiers (CWP) to Cambodian households, particularly in rural areas. CWPs are point-of-use treatment systems which remove microbes from contaminated water.
Jul 06, 2016 Case in point Cambodia, where UNICEF and the Water Sanitation Program teamed up to build ceramic water filters, which were distributed to the population. The project won an International Water Association Award in 2008. The filters cut the rates of diarrheal illness in the region by as much as 50 percent since the filters were introduced in 2002.
Nov 22, 2010 They spent a packed week exploring our water and sanitation marketing programs in Cambodia. Here they write about their experience visiting Hydrologics ceramic water filter production facility where they interviewed some of the employees. Hydrologic Social Enterprise is the producer of the Rabbit-brand and Super Tunsai ceramic water purifiers.
Dec 19, 2012 appraisal of the performance of the ceramic water filtration projects undertaken by IDE and RDI. It is hoped that the findings produced will aid in assessing the water quality and health impacts of the ceramic water filtration interventions to date and yield useful information on the sustainability of the filters as implemented.
Tunsai Ceramic Water Purifier is a silver-enhanced ceramic pot water filters for household drinking water treatment. This product is manufactured by Hydrologic in Cambodia based on the open-source technology promoted by Potters for Peace.
On October 1st, RDMA and USAID-Cambodia jointly announced the opening of Hydrologic Inc., a social enterprise manufacturing ceramic water filters in Cambodia. Hydrologic is the first social enterprise launched through RDMAs WaterSHED program. Over 125 people participated in

Lack of access to safe drinking water is one of the main causes of disease in Cambodia. The Ceramic Water Purifier (CWP) Project is a 5-year plan to make clean water available to 75,000 households and to create a sustainable, self-financing industry to continue long-term CWP distribution. The CWP effectively removes bacteriological contamination, through a filtering system, making water safe for human

In Cambodia, due to a lack of accessible clean water, many residents must boil their water in order to make it potable. To boil this water, they use wood-burning fires, which emit carbon dioxide into both the home and atmosphere. This project provides locally-made ceramic water purifiers to Cambodian families. With a filter in their homes, families no longer need to boil their water to make it ...
