UBC develops mobile water treatment system for remote communities

A UBC professor and his team have developed a mobile micro water treatment plant.

The two plants have a variety of treatment options, and are small enough to fit inside a towed trailer and the back of a cargo van.

UBC chemical and biological engineering professor, Madjid Mohseni, says the goal of the plant is to bring a variety of options to rural and remote communities to find one that suits their needs.

He says the mini plant has a variety of options to see which one works for a specific community, but also whether the community can maintain whatever option they choose.

Mohseni emphasizes they take a collaborative approach with communities to find out what’s best for them.

Currently there are no fees for communities to ask for testing, but that remains dependent on funding.
