Title: Improved Biosand Methodologies for Sustainable Clean Water Solutions in Northern Honduras

Oklahoma State University’s team is researching ways to decrease costs of building water filters in the developing world. Biosand filters are a proven technology for producing clean, potable water. They work by filtering pathogens through a biologically active layer and trapping them in a bed of sand. The team is focused on the economical construction and best use of these filters for their project site in Honduras as well as for many places throughout Central America.
