FILTERMO

Save the world one drop at a time.

FILTERMO is a natural filter based on Moringa that purifies almost any type of water and you can use it for any daily activities.

Use Case

The user takes a sample of dirty water from rain, rivers, lakes, etc. Then the water is introduced into the filter, which proceeds to purify the water and the clean water that comes out of the filter can be used for any daily activity. in case you want to ingest the water, it should go through a simple heat treatment

Potential

the potential of the project is very great because a large part of the world population does not have access to clean water or have access to drinkable water; This filter has the ability to transform the dirty water into water suitable for daily use with the simple properties of the Moringa and the other components that are part of the filter and are also easy to obtain, thus solving the problem of lack of water in the communities.

Business Case

Our business model is "The Bait and Hook". this business model it based on the offer a basic product at a very low price, often with losses for the company that offers it (bait) and then charge with high prices the associated product, the spare parts, or services (hook), because the company can sell the complete thermo at a low price and separately sell the spare parts of the filter.

Objectives:

  1. Create a water filtration system to help people with limited resources to have access to clean and suitable water for daily activities.
  2. Let the people known the properties of the Moringa seed through the elaboration of the filter
  3. promote the cultivation of Moringa to maximize the use of it and create different products based on it
