Ceramic filter producers in MP to undergo final training
by Jane B. Cadalig

Problems on access to clean and safe drinking water will soon be a thing of the past as ceramic filter producers in Bauko, Mountain Province are set for training on the last component of the technology production.

Department of Science and Technology Supervising Science Research Specialist Norberto Cobaldez said members of the potter’s organization that will manage the operation of the ceramic filter plant are set for training on the firing of clay to be used as filters, the last component of the production process. The training is set within the first quarter of this year.

“Once the training is realized, we hope the group can now produce ceramic filters not only for Mountain Province but also for other provinces in the region,” Cobaldez said.

In 2015, the DOST provided P2.3 million for the establishment of ceramic water filter plant in Bauko because water filtered using clay samples in the area, particularly in Barangay Bila, passed the standards for drinking water.

DOST Regional Director Victor Mariano said the project will help boost Bila’s pottery industry as the town will also serve as the marketing center of ceramic water filters in the region.

“We hope that the ceramic water filter plant will produce enough and local government units will order from the town so they can use (the technology) to provide safe drinking water for people in areas having problems on access to potable water,” Mariano said.

The filtering device makes use of micro-filtration technique, which is an effective way to get rid of infectious microorganisms.

Mariano said the technology is also helpful during disasters when there are no means of providing potable water for communities.

Cobaldez said the project is a convergence program of agencies such as the departments of Trade and Industry and Labor and Employment, the local government of Bauko, and stakeholders of the town’s pottery industry.

The group that will manage the plant will also be trained on valuation or pricing of the ceramic filters.
