Abstract:
    We are aiming to make a water container/bottle that can passively kill the waterborne pathogens and microbes using a specific material that can be coated inside of these water containers.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    The unsafe drinking water causes health havocs in most of the underprivileged areas in Pakistan. In these regions, people can't afford to arrange water filtration system to clean the water and make it potable. Lack of government contribution to address the issue is also aggravating the situation.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   People all over the Pakistan can get benefit from this. Not only people but it can also reduce patients load in the hospitals.
How will the solution works
    Certain materials such as We can utilize this property of the material to kill microbes in portable water by making container/bottles out of this material e.g. TiO3 Diphase Polycrystals that can convert visible light to UV light. This UV light can be utilized to kill microbes present in the water by coating a transilluminate film inside of the containers/bottles. We can also use titania coating that produces oxides that can also kill microbes in water.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Potential competitors can be the packaging industry and filtration plants industry.Our solution is Cheap, accessible to masses, green/power saving, and there is no technical assistance required.
