Plant manufacturing water purifying sachets opens in S’pore [News]
By Sing Geok Shan, Channel NewsAsia, 29 Nov 2012.
A not-for-profit plant making sachets that purify water has opened in Singapore.
Consumer goods producer Procter & Gamble (P&G) said Singapore’s location and strong logistics capabilities will allow it to react quickly to disaster-prone nations in the region.
Each four-gramme sachet can turn 10 litres of dirty water into clean drinking water. The two primary components are ferric sulfate, a well-known and widely-used coagulant, and calcium hypochlorite, a disinfectant.
The water purification packet was developed by P&G in collaboration with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
