Filtermac is newly introduced at the dormitories: filtered water into your own bottle
It is good news for anybody who likes filtered water and at the same time they want to take some burden off Nature’s shoulders and save some unnecessary plastics. At the dormitories Blanice and Vltava, you can now find the Filtermac filtration device for water and here you can draw sparkling or still water of the best quality.
Filtermac is an alternative to bottled water and helps to save PET bottles as you draw the water into your own bottles.
How to draw water?
Students and staff of the dormitories download the Filtermac application, register themselves and choose a tariff (Monthly, Yearly or Yearly with Bottle). The price is approximately 1 CZK per 3 litres a day. Having opened the application they can see a QR code, scan it easily in the Filtermac scanner and immediately they can draw either sparkling or still water.
Look at video tutorial.
Advantages of drawing via the app?
Everybody has got a perfect overview of their water intake and the daily limit is 3 litres of water. They can see their personal statistics – i.e. how many kilograms of plastics and how many PET bottles they have saved and also the amount of CO2 that would have been produced during the transportation of the bottled water. At the same time they get the statistics of the whole community of the school.
Why drink from Filtermac?
Thanks to the complex filtration using the filters of active coal, the Filtermac machine not only removes all the undesirable tastes and smells from the water but it also removes all the particles and impurities bigger than 0.5 micron that can be commonly found in tap water. Thanks to the special treatment of the water using UV light all the unwanted bacteria as well as microorganisms are damaged.
Filtermac and the University of Economics and Business
VŠE has been offering the alternative to bottled water since August 2017, when the first Filtermac machine was installed at Jarov. The second (2018) and the third (2019) are available in the old building at Žižkov. Since then the students and staff have helped to save about 13 tons of plastics (519 200 PET bottles).
Even though less water was drunk at schools during the covid year, also thanks to VŠE we have managed to save altogether 4 535 808 PET bottles – the amount of bottles that have never left the production lines.
