Sanyo Electric Co., Ltd. (Tokyo) and Institut Technologi Bandung (ITB), a water quality research authority in Indonesia, signed a joint R&D agreement to develop household water decontamination solutions using "aquaoasis." The effort intends to commercialize clean water for households in regions with problematic water supplies.

Indonesia has made a public commitment to provide an access to clean water for more than 80 percent of the people by 2015. In Indonesia, the firms say, clean water is defined as, "Water that is drinkable only after being boiled."

“Most people would associate the production of clean water with a large water decontamination system, but for the people living in the 2,000 different islands that constitute Indonesia are concerned, they need an easy to install, household use water decontamination system," said ITB Rector Dr. Djoko Santose. "Our efforts will not just end at the product itself but our education about purifying system maintenance will raise the education level, as well as lead to employment opportunities."

Commercialization of the Sanyo system will begin in the fall of 2006.
