Humanitarian Innovation Fund has FibreForm potential!

Humanitarian Innovation Fund is a major player in the world of providing innovation funding and expertise. HIF's website says "Supports organisations and individuals to identify, nurture and share innovative and scalable solutions to the challenges facing effective humanitarian assistance." They work on projects all over the world, these are some of their current projects: http://www.elrha.org/hif/projects/

I found a project called: THE 'ORIGAMI' INCLINED PLATE SETTLER which would work perfectly with FibreForm. Essentially its a concertina paper folding water filter system. Low cost, very light weight, takes up very little space and exceptionally easy to transport. Nice!

Description from the HIP's website:
http://www.elrha.org/projects/origami-inclined-plate-settler/

Summary: A fit-for-purpose humanitarian emergency water treatment system based on the principles of inclined plate settling.

Challenge(s) addressed: This innovation addresses the inadequacies of current water treatment technologies, which are frequently not aligned with humanitarian objectives; resulting in unnecessarily expensive and sometimes ineffective relief.

Innovation Factor: Plate settling principles allow for relatively higher loading rates and consequentially a higher treated water production yield within a smaller footprint. By making the unit collapsible, setup times and transportation costs can also be reduced.

Added Value: Ultimately, larger volumes of water can be produced within SPHERE Standard water quality levels using a relatively low-cost and simple treatment process.
