Electric From Waste Water

The two-member of Filipino Team Electrifilter from the College of Engineering of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines made waves in the recently-concluded Go Green in the City World Finals in Paris, France, placing third overall. PUP Electronics Engineering students John Paul G. Santos and Christian Sta. Romana clinched the third top spot in the 12-nation competition, which was dominated by India, France and the Philippines.

The idea, according to the PUP College of Engineering, is "to generate (not convert, as earlier reported) electricity from waste water, that is sufficient to supply power for sidewalk lamp posts and charging stations. The filthy water will also be filtrated and ionized to become a clean and usable water for communities especially in times of disaster and calamities." The Santos-Romana tandem placed third with their Electrifilter, a device that generates electricity from waste water. PUP's Team Electrifilter won the country finals of Go Green in the City 2015 last March 6 in Taguig City, Metro Manila. It topped the East Asia finals on April 2, which drew participation of other teams from Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Philippines.
