At its press conference, Sabic emphasized how it is meeting industry's toughest challenges through bold investments aligned with its material science and chemistry expertise. There were plenty of examples on display at its expansive booth in the South Hall of the Orange County Convention Center, but this water pump caught my attention because of the very human challenge it solved.
The VillagePump provides clean, affordable drinking water to rural regions around the world without using external fossil fuels or electronics—it relies solely on elbow grease. The filtered water meets World Health Organization standards and can help reduce disease. Sabic's Geloy ASA resin is used for the external housing and its Noryl modified polyphenylene ether resin blend is used for the valve assembly.
