In crisis situations as floods, pollution or insufficient resource capacity, humanitarian and evacuation actions, it is necessary to ensure rapid supply of DW. This can be problem by using existing capacities and it is necessary to look for secondary source of DW. Project solves this problem by developing a mobile unit of the DW treatment plant, which will be possible to put into operation in given place within 24 hr.
The treatment technology will be based on micro/ultrafiltration (separation of biological agents) in combination with sorption on carbon nanotubes (retention of hazardous chemicals) and disinfection. The technology will be installed in container with its own power unit (independence from elect. network), which will increase its application potential for emergency placing.
