About AFM and water treatment
Dryden Aqua is competing in the product category with AFM and active filter media that replace sand in sand filters. Most of our drinking water is filtered by sand, and simply by changing the sand for AFM will double the performance of the filters. What does this mean...? in the developing world AFM could eliminate water based parasitic infections which account for nearly 25% of all disease. AFM can filter down to 1 micron with no precoagulation or flocculation, to physicaly remove parasites, this performance is imossible for sand.
In developed countries it could reduce infection by around 2%. AFM will also reduce the cost of treating water by up to 25% by reducing energy, water and chemical consumption and by reducing chemical consumption we also reduce disinfection by-products and human chemical exposure. AFM also offers scope for the removal of priority chemicals.
The Awards Ceremony will take place on December 1st in Lyon. For more information click here
