Just found this on the BBC's website... interesting product in developement for the overlanding folk:

A group of researchers in South Africa has developed a filter that can purify water straight from the bottle.

It sits inside a tube that can be fitted on top of a bottle and purifies water as it is poured on a cup.

According to him the filter will not only stop harmful bacteria from getting into the water, it will also kill them.

"We cover the tea bag material with nano-structured fibres, and instead of tea inside the tea bag, we incorporate activated carbon.
Now that is something I would like. However, journalism and correctly reported facts almost never go together so I would take the report with a healthy pinch of salt. I hope it is as good as they say though as that would be a much cheaper and more efficient way of sorting drinking water.
