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.
Our reporter Tom Sheldrick went along to see the process in action:
Ensuring people have access to safe water remains a major challenge for global leaders in the 21st century.
The charity WaterAid estimates:

- That's around 1 in 10 of the global population
- Every 21 seconds, a child dies from a water-related illness
