An efficient and clean way to access water

For the many countries that are facing drought and dry conditions, access to clean and safe drinking water is a top priority. To answer this need, designers from the European team, CORDIS, have developed a desalinization process that utilizes solar power, is highly efficient and low cost. Current desalinization systems pressurize salt water to force […]

Drinking water from sunshine

MIT team designs solar-powered portable desalination system to use in disaster zones and remote regions. Systems that remove salt from saltwater, or desalination systems, have existed for decades, they are typically large-scale installations that require lots of energy to operate. As bottled water was given the highest priority in terms of airborne relief supplies in […]

C-Water by Chao Gao

The Chinese Engineer Chao Gao has designed the so called “C-Water”, an award-winning experimental desalination product that uses solar power to make drinking water. The C-Water system was a recent entry in Designboom‘s Incheon International Design Awards, where its water purification possibilities drew attention due to its simple distillation technique. ‘C-Water’ is a device that produces freshwater. It evaporates sewage, […]
