Timothy Director Whitehead, Pure Water Technology
This design employs UV-light technology to quickly filter and sterilize water. Innovator Timothy Whitehead developed the idea when traveling in Zambia where he noticed fresh water supplies were abundant, but most were not drinkable. The Pure Water Bottle was originally intended for tourists and travelers who needed quick access to drinking water, but Whitehead says the bottles are also suited for local populations who lack access to clean water. Testing has been carried at Loughborough University, UK.
