Military Water Filters & Military Desalination Filters: Environmental Impact

Assembly Plant

HTI’s forward osmosis technology doesn’t just benefit soldiers, it can be a relief for an environment stressed by military operations as well.

In Afghanistan and Iraq, as many as 45 million bottles of water are consumed daily. These bottles are cast aside, buried or burned in pits and incinerators; either littering the landscape or dumping tons of carbon emissions into the air. Point-of-use water filtration in remote areas and while on patrol not only minimizes the spread of this waste, it also lowers the carbon footprint of the supply system. The environmental benefit can be calculated in both the disposal issues of those bottles, as well as the reduced transport footprint required to deliver tons of bottled water to the soldier.
