When disaster strikes, our priorities quickly shift to the most fundamental of requirements. And the most basic of all needs is clean water, whether for drinking or cleaning wounds. There are already a few autonomous devices for treating water, but a company from Marseille has now developed an extremely compact and portable solution shaped like a suitcase. The WATERCASE will celebrate its trade fair premiere in the French pavilion at INTERSCHUTZ in Hannover.

The WATERCASE can make contaminated water from virtually any source drinkable by eliminating 99.999 percent of viruses and bacteria. The technology is based on ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis and UV light. The WATERCASE is a self-cleaning system that requires no chemical additives or consumables. As a result, the WATERCASE plays an important role in simplifying the logistics involved in providing a safe water treatment system for humanitarian aid efforts and disaster relief. It can also treat graywater in quarantine and isolation scenarios.
