    University students from Mexico and the United States, grouped in the civil association Caminos de Agua, created a low-cost, high-efficiency water filter, which they called Aguadapt, and which is able to eliminate bacteria, fluoride and arsenic from water extracted from nearby wells to mines.

    The young people, who live in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, were recognized in 2018 for their innovation, by the British James Dyson Foundation and this year seek advice and funding from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, explained to Crónica one of the four innovators , Aaron Krupp.
    ...
    Their desire to grow and be able to manufacture a greater number of filters came from the experience that in 2017, after the earthquake in Mexico City, the NGO Oxfam asked for 5 thousand filters and only had a few hundred. So now they want to grow and presented the project to the James Dyson Foundation and look for the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
