  • Removes 99% of heavy metal contaminants from drinking and industrial wastewater
  • The solution is scalable from household to industrial use

3) Stakeholders:

  • Perry Alapaggan
  • Technology manufacturers/providers
  • Areas with toxic water problems
  • Water management facilities

4) Implementation

  • Scale the project and define the first target location/group
  • Determine costs for the target location
  • Fund raise for the costs of the target location
  • Prove whether or not the technology works and is beneficial when applied to target location
