Water Independence: just add sea and sun

Water Independence: just add sea and sun

Desolenator is a patented desalination technology that uses just sunlight to purify water from ANY source (seawater, brackish, contaminated) into 100% clean drinking water. The device does not require disposable components such pre-treatment chemicals, membranes or filters and its robust design is built to last up to 20 years. As it is run on 100% solar power, Desolenator enables even the most remote of communities to be water independent. Our units range from 20L to 1000L/day and can be scaled in a modular fashion. An onboard computer built into every unit monitors output and yield. In rare cases of a fluctuations in productivity, a maintenance alert is triggered on a central control board ensuring that there is minimal downtime. Our company goal is to make 1 million people water independent in our first 5 years of operations.

Long Description

Desolenator delivers 100% pure drinking water, providing even the most remote communities or households with water independence. Today 783 million people do not have access to clean water and the UN estimates that by 2030 – close to half of the world will face water shortages on a daily basis. From California to Indonesia to India – the water crisis is one that affects our global community. Distribution channels vary depending on the end-consumer. For developed markets we utilise local distributors links into the market. For developing economies we reach vulnerable communities through partnerships with NGOs and collaboration with government.
