Folia Materials was founded by two scientists with a green chemistry process to make a simple antimicrobial paper water purifier using nano-metallised paper, manufactured using large-scale paper and low cost of paper mills. Folia Water Filters are a simple, antimicrobial paper water filter for Base-of-the-Pyramid (BoP) consumers, which retail at the same 20 cent pricing as other grocery store staples for 20 liters of safe, germ-free water. Folia Water Filters use silver to kill bacteria and viruses, while the paper’s pores physically eliminate dirt, iron, and larger pathogens to make water safe to drink. Packaged like a simple coffee filter, Folia’s product is designed to be simple and fit into the containers that consumers already use in their kitchens, such as Bangladeshi kolshis pitchers.
