JASON McPherson has a goal to see his new wastewater treating invention, Ali Jak, used all over the world.

Not just for treating toxic mine water in commercial applications but also in developing nations that have limited clean drinking water.

Mr McPherson's machine can be scaled up or down in size to treat varying amounts of water and best of all its portable.

He is even trying to build one that can be carried in a backpack.

The invention seems to have an endless number of uses and will help the environment and plenty of people.

The best thing is that has been invented in Gympie and Mr McPherson plans to expand his business here to keep locals employed.

Our region needs more go-getters like him who are passionate about the community.
