A company from Carmarthenshire is exporting its pioneering water-purification technology around the world.
Hydro Industries, based in Llangennech, uses electrodes, to separate contaminants, ranging from mud to radioactive material, from safe water.

Ensuring people have access to safe water remains a major challenge for global leaders in the 21st century.
