ACI installed an ACI Hollow-Membrane and Heavy Metal Filter while training local engineers in the village of Llano de San Francisco, Querétaro, Mexico. The village is located in the mountainous Serra Gorda region nearest the town of Pinal de Amoles. Due to the high amounts of arsenic in their water from one of their main industries, mining, the government has had to temporarily deliver clean water for the villagers to consume. This filter is one of several to be installed because of the continued high arsenic rates in this area. The work could not be done without the synergistic help of the people of Mexico. Together with the Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro, CONAGUA, and local government health officials this work is being done.
Also, ACI has worked with Ford Corporation in Northern Mexico, where arsenic contamination is found naturally throughout the Sonora state. In a town outside of Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, ACI with Ford and a local NGO Unidos por la Niñez, has implemented hollow-membrane and arsenic remediation technology.
