Great Results at Wolfson College's WIN Pitch Event
Bhumi Purohit, a M.Sc. student in the Contemporary India Studies program (2014-15), recently co-presented a business plan for H2Ox at Wolfson College's WIN Pitch event. H2Ox's aim is to implement solar powered, village-level purification systems to provide safe drinking water to rural communities. Using an innovative ion removal technology to purify water, one purifier system will be able to provide up to 1.2 million litres of safe drinking water to a community of approximately 800 people at low costs. H2Ox won the £1000 runner-up award at the Pitch event, and is working with Indian organisations to deliver a pilot test in Karnataka, India to understand its viability in a low-income community. H2Ox's vision is to evolve our project into a social enterprise to provide safe water to communities in need. Our congratulations go out to all involved.
