Ultra-portable water filter made from oil palm kernel shells aids treatment of contaminated water -

- 19 Aug 2022
SERDANG, June 2 – Research has found that 53% of the river’s water quality in Malaysia is classified as slightly polluted or polluted, and this is indirectly connected to the water supply disruptions and deterioration of the quality of drinking water.

A high adsorption method is essential to produce activated carbon that is used in the process of purifying contaminated water for daily use.

Thus, Head of the Laboratory of Biopolymers and Derivatives (BADs), Institute of Tropical Forestry and Forest Products (INTROP), Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), Prof. Dato' Dr. H'ng Paik San, developed AquaPod, an ultra-portable water filter derived from oil palm kernel shells to supply pure water for daily usage.

AquaPod is an eco-friendly innovation made from oil palm kernel shells. The microporous structured activated carbon produced from oil palm shells contributes to this ultra-portable water filter's extremely high adsorption properties and is suitable for all types of piping.
