Solar Solutions Water Purifier System Saves Lives

April 10, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] Solar Solutions, has designed two devices that would utilize solar energy to purify water in the developing world, where about 80 percent of all diseases are water-borne, according to the United Nations and about 5,000 children die every day from drinking contaminated water. One device, the AquaCone, is a floating water purifier that distills any naturally occurring water into safe drinking water with no pumping involved and no filters to clog. The solar water pasteurizer, called the AquaPak, that will cost as little as one dollar per unit to manufacture in third world countries has the potential to save millions of lives and significantly reduce illness among rural populations in nations where access to safe drinking water is scarce.
