MSABI staff ecstatic about positive test results

Lab tests have been run on the MSABI filter pots that were made with our new press. Three filters were tested without the application of silver, each pot removed more than 90% of all E.Coli bacteria from 3 liters of river water. By applying silver MSABI expects more than 99% of bacteria to be removed. This will hopefully be confirmed within the next few days. The potting team still has to work on improving the flow rates of our filters. Currently the flow rate is 5-6 liters per hour, which is relatively high and by adjusting the ratio of rice husk and clay in the next batch of filters MSABI hopes to reach around 2-3 liters per hour.
