Harnessing sunshine and seawater
Solar-thermal desalination company Desolenator has signed a strategic agreement with integrated services company, Ecolog International, to help scale up its solar powered desalination solution.
The partnership has set out the ambition to harness “the world’s two most abundant resources: sunshine and sea water”.
Desolenator’s technology uses both thermal and electrical energy to distil complex water types including; seawater, brackish water and heavy-metal contaminated water sources.
Capable of producing 15 litres per day, the product requires no power supply, other than the sun.
The solution being promoted is said to be able to “purify even the toughest water types without the need for filters, chemicals or polluting fossil fuels” and convert seawater into high quality drinking water at scale, and at a cost of less than $1 per cubic meter.
Founded in 2014, the company closed an Indiegogo crowd funding campaign with over £136,000.
