There is a great need for effective, reliable and inexpensive filters for the removal of fluoride for the millions of people affected in low and middle-income countries. This paper compares field and laboratory performance of bone char (BC) filters and filters, known as contact precipitation (CP), based on a combination of bone char and calcium-phosphate pellets.
