Queen's University scientists behind safer drinking water in US

ity of installation and operation. The cost of setting up a plant to produce up to 6,000 litres of water a day averages under 2,500 ($4000) less in the developing world and the operational cost is 14 a month ($20).

"The estimated life of each plant is about 20 years without any mechanical maintenance, and the system is operated, quite simply, by the pressing of an electrical switch."

The technology has already attracted interest from other parts of the United States, and plans are now advanced for SAR plants to be set up in Cambodia, Vietnam and Mexico in the next six months.

The work of Dr Sen Gupta's team has won accolades from around the world. In November Queen's University was awarded the prestigious Times Higher Education Outstanding Engineering Research Team of the Year title.

The judges said: "Engineering at its core is about solving critical problems. The team from Queen's has exemplified this, finding an innovative solution to overcome arsenic contamination of groundwater and thus improve the quality of life in rural communities."

Dr Sen Gupta was also awarded the St Andrews Prize for the Environment and the World Bank Innovation Fair Championship in Cape Town in 2010.
