WKU effort aims at creating new human-powered water purifier

Bowling Green, Ky – Five outstanding engineering students from as far away as Venezuela are on the WKU campus, hoping to develop an effective, low cost water purifier. Dr. Kevin Schmaltz of the WKU Engineering Department is one of the project managers. He says the idea is to develop a purifier that operates on human power, so it can be used in emergency settings.
