March 13, 2019 5:30 am
Minister for Infrastructure Jone Usamate opened an Ecological Purification System Workshop at the University of the South Pacific in Suva yesterday.
Usamate says the EPS is a chemical and energy free water purification technology.
Usamate adds that the system was designed by Dr. Nobutada Nakamoto, a Professor from the Shinshu University in Japan.
He says the EPS is designed to make drinking water save by using a natural ecological purification process without chemicals.
The purification mechanism is based on the biological activity of algae, microbes and microscopic small animals.
The implementation of community based Ecological Purification System was made possible through the funding of government.
The workshop which ends today is hosted by JICA.
