The Prem Rawat Foundation
Deck: 

As many as 2,000 people in remote villages lacking public utilities will benefit

The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) has made a grant of $15,000 to provide clean drinking water to an estimated 1,880 students and teachers plus nearby villages through eight schools in remote provinces of Thailand.

The funds went to the Drinking Water for Schoolchildren Project run by Thailand's Betterment of Life Foundation (BoLF) to purchase tanks and filtration systems selected to best meet the needs of each school. Once they are installed, BoLF will maintain these systems indefinitely.

A Guide to Carbon Certification

The application of activated carbon to drinking water dates all the way back to 450 B.C., when Phoenician trading ships stored drinking water in charred wooden barrels. This practice was widely in use on long sea voyages by the 18th century. Even today, brewers use charred wooden barrels to remove impurities during the aging process.

UPC filter cartridges are manufactured from a proprietary blend of 50% carbon and 50% polypropylene fiber yarn. The carbon and polypropylene media are bonded to prevent carbon transfer during handling and downstream carbon fine migration. The filters are offered in various lengths, outside diameters, micron ratings and core materials. They offer the performance and reliability of string-wound cartridges with the advantages of carbon.  
 

Short-Term Gain, Long-Term Pain

Granular activated carbon (GAC) is the great equalizer, providing superb filtration for a wide range of end-user concerns. It is a versatile, high-capacity powerhouse medium that can reduce and capture a multitude of contaminants. Its massive surface area and physical structure allow for contaminant reduction, primarily via adsorption, catalytic reduction and physical filtration.
