BRJW Enterprises in collaboration with LifeSaver UK, launched water purification equipment in Sri Lanka recently. Minister of Finance Ravi Karunanayake was also present.
Lifesaver Water Purification equipment has military grade patent filters in its products that can filter viruses, bacteria, cysts and harmful arsenic and cadmium.
Arsenic and cadmium, a waste product of fertilizer is one of the main cause of Chronic Kidney Disease in Sri Lanka that has effected over 20,000 families and as much as 400,000 people.
The Lifesaver Jerrycan can purify over 20,000 litres of any source of water and provide clean drinking water in a few seconds and uses no electricity or chemicals for the purification.
The water tested through the products has the World Health Organization Certification and the industry standard for filtration and membrane technology, the NSF Standard. The Jerrycan can provide a family of four, clean drinking water for more than three years and all it would need would be a filter replacement.
The purification jerrycan can be filled with any type of water such as brackish, sewage, waste and pesticide mixed and in a simple operation provides safe clean drinking water, a spokesman for the company said.
