The suitcase-like compact water purification system designed by Liquinex has the ability to provide high-quality WHO standard drinking water to at a rate of 500 L/hr, meaning it can benefit around 1,700 people at the rate of 3 L/day/person/per suitcase. The suitcases run on a very low power 12V requirement, which can easily be supplemented by solar packs or car batteries, making it ideal for emergency response situations. The suitcases have been deployed in disaster areas in Laos, Kerala (India), Sulawesi (Indonesia) and used in a rural school in Padang (Indonesia).
