The AQQA®-cube is a filter product that combines the advantages of the AQQA®-bag and the AQQA®-system. Thanks to its mobility, it can easily be transported to its respective place of use. Nevertheless, due to its size and the filter area it contains, the cube still can process more than 1200 liters of drinking water per day and 400 liters in 8 hours operation time.
The application is just as simple as with the AQQA®-bag: Water from a lake or river is fed into the filter box and filtered with a membrane. The AQQA®-cube can be placed at a fixed location or transported. Transport, however, is only possible when empty.
The AQQA®-cube costs only 1170 Euro. If this amount is converted to the enormous filter performance, one liter of hygienically clean water costs less than 1 cent. For comparison: drinking water is sold in East Africa in plastic bottles of 1.5 liters each for about one euro. Thus, the cube offers clean drinking water to a very low cost and less plastic waste production.
