This water disinfectant device is able to create clean water for those in need. Developed by Mountain Safety Research, the SE200 Community Chlorine Maker was recently the subject of a successful crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. Based in Seattle, Washington, MSR invented technology that is able to produce on-demand disinfecting results using only water, salt and electricity generated from a 12v battery.

The SE200 Community Chlorine Maker empowers those in low resource, developing communities to create chlorine used to make an on the spot water treatment. This can then be used for safe drinking water, taking only five minutes. The accessible water disinfectant gadget will also improve the health of impoverished areas.

This is one example of how local solutions can break the cycle of poverty.
