The Ceramic Water Filter is a DOST developed innovative technology that address the requirement of a simple, effective and economical water filter that can be used in rural areas.

This candle-type water filter has an anti-microbial agent that eliminates disease-causing waterborne microorganisms. It is easy to use and does not need electricity to operate the filter.
All CWFs were delivered to the 10th Infantry Battalion, 1st Division in Barangay Burgos, Oroquieta City where Kristel C. Alvarico, a DOST staff demonstrated the installation, use, and cleaning of the filters.

A day after, the team of LTC John P. Andrada deployed 12 units of CWFs to the beneficiaries in Barangay Lalud, Don Victoriano Chiongbian- the farthest municipality in Misamis Occidental. In addition, LTC Andrada also showed them how to install and use the filter for optimal utilization.
The other 13 units of CWFs will be deployed to the Former Rebels (FRs) of Barangay Sebucal, Oroquieta City scheduled this year.
Indeed, DOST paved the way of making available water into safe and potable drinking water for every Juan in the country. (Joanne Kathering R. Banaag, DOST-X)
