Today we welcomed the arrival a 20 foot TARDIS-like container to our Frenchay Campus. The container houses the prototype for a novel water treatment system that has the capacity to revolutionise the lives of people across the globe by providing access to clean drinking water at source.
The container will now undergo final tests before being transported to Eastern Europe where it will be tested in situ. Following these tests the aim is for the containers to go into mass production.
In this film Professor Darren Reynolds explains how the system works.
This work being conducted by Professor Darren Reynold’s team and our partners, Portsmouth Aviation, Pentair and Bridge Biotechnology is world class. This is science for the real world, addressing urgent problems through positive partnership working. It is about fixing something critical right now and transforming lives. We are immensely proud of this work – it is showcasing UWE Bristol at the top of its game.
