The engineer Margaret Lengerich has created a system that eliminates arsenic from water supplies cheaply and effectively. In contrast with other existing technologies, Lengerich’s doesn’t use chemicals to filter the arsenic and doesn’t require the element which separates the poison from the water to be replaced for five years, she explains. This innovative approach has lead to Lengerich’s recognition as one of MIT Technology Review, Spanish Editions Innovators Under 35 Chile 2016 and Social Innovator of the Year Chile 2016.
