Default Airbus A380 water purification

Those of you who are backpackers and know of the MSR MIOX purifier may
find this interesting...


MIOX mixed-oxidant technology for water purification has been selected
to be installed on the new Airbus A380 aircraft. This plane will be the
largest commercial aircraft in the skies and is expected to debut in
2006. Total capacity will be 555 passengers on two complete levels - a
"double-decker" design. The A380 will also be the first commercial
aircraft with on-board potable water disinfection. MIOX Corporation is
part of an international team assembled by Monogram Systems, the leading
water and waste systems supplier in the aviation industry.

The MIOX mixed-oxidant disinfection system will allow airlines to pick
up water anywhere in the world and feel confident that they will be able
to purify it and have a safe water system on their planes. The MIOX
system, which uses salt, water, and an electrolytic cell to produce a
solution containing mixed oxidants, will be designed to meet the
aircraft industry's needs. The unit will be able to purify the
650-gallon system and will insure 100% reliability for water purification.

Maytag is using *this* technology to provide a "central" water-purification
system for homes:


Wonder if it can be adapted for passenger aircraft (light enough???), and
whether they had an opportunity to bid.

(The Canadian Military has a disaster-relief setup using the same
technology. It was used to provide water during the Tsunami disaster
earlier this year)
