    About This Project

    Each year, more than 3.5 million people die from lack of access to clean water in developing countries. Our objective is to develop an inexpensive sustainable water purification system. Our method involves using chitin, a cheap and abundant material which all the crustacean shells are made of. After non-chemical extraction, chitin can be used as part of a water purification system to provide affordable clean water for people.
