PASTEURIZATION OF WATER USING SOLAR AQUAPAK: A CASE STUDY, 2012.
by Prof. Oluwole Agbede of the University of Ibadan, Nigeria, and facilited with the help of Femi Odediran, former Sr. Adviser, Water and Sanitation with UNICEF New York.
University of Ibadan, Nigeria was provided solar pasteurizers by Femi Odediran, retired UNICEF water and sanitation senior adviser. Water from a borehole at Fanawole, a well at Oju Oja, and a stream at Adeosun areas were collected and all contained biological pathogens. The solar pasteurizers, each containing a WAPI (water pasteurization indicator), were used to heat the water to 65°C, thus, eliminating the harmful pathogens.
