Devastating floods inspire invention

Effecting positive change: Lam’s experience as a flood victim spurred him on to devise a water production system with his teammates.

A PHD candidate’s experience of coping with floods and the resulting effects on daily life led him to come up with a solution to Malaysia’s clean water problem.

Together with two other researchers, Lam Jia Yong from Universiti Putra Malaysia, Norfazliana Abdullah from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, and Mohamad Fakhrul Ridhwan Samsudin from Universiti Teknologi Petronas designed an automated self-powered water treatment and monitoring system for drinkable water production.
