The Water Sustainable Point of Use Treatment Technologies (WASTERSPOUTT) aims to provide safe drinking water to communities who rely on unsafe sources using SODIS technologies. With funding from the European Union, WATERSPOUTT – a consortium of 18 higher education institutes, organisations and small to medium enterprises will carry out a technological development programme to advance three water treatment technologies based on Solar Disinfection (SODIS), by designing, piloting and bringing to market three novel solar based technologies (Solar rainwater reactors - South Africa and Uganda, Solar jerry cans - Ethiopia and Solar-ceramic filtration - Malawi. In parallel, a social science programme has been structured to make sure that the technologies are adopted by the target communities in rural Africa, with the support of the local authorities and in an economically sustainable way.
