After discussions with a colleague with extensive experience in ground water research and borehole pumping projects, I learned that ground water extraction by means of solar powered borehole pumps have been proven quite successful in providing a considerable quantity of fairly clean, drinkable water to farms and rural communities. It is also a fairly simple system that works independently, requires little maintenance; ...more »
CAROCELL™ Direct Solar Powered Desalination Technology is one of the most efficient and cost effective product of its kind in the world. The panel(s) system creates its own natural sun-powered water cycle to revitalize water to drinking water quality from any water source. This includes polluted, contaminated, industrial waste water, brackish ground water, saline aquifers and sea water. Pure clean drinking water from ...more »
The Solar Mini Grids for communities provide an ultimate solution to (i) Energy poverty (ii) Availability of safe drinking water for domestics purposes (iii) Answer food insecurity and nutrition problems in rural areas (iv) Mitigate continued emissions of Carbon dioxide into the atmosphere (carbon foot-print) by use of solid fuels thereby combating Climate Change. Solar Energy is the most abundant source of renewable ...more »
Not to be confused with solar sterilization or disinfection, solar distillation purifies even muddy, salty or otherwise undrinable water through evaporation and condensation. The power of distilation to purify saltwater makes it unique among the treatment methods featured on this page. A solar still can actually be a cheap and simple piece of shaped plastic or glass, or they can be more highly designed devices. To work, ...more »
I am living in a country (The Gambia) where electricity is a major challenge. Development and better living condition cannot be attained if electricity is a problem.
Therefore, am keenly appealing to your noble organization to have a solar project in The Gambia.
The main source of drinking water must be protected from deliberate pollution and spread of disease like guinea worm. The water is shared with animals, and is used by humans for cooking and drinking in the villages of Africa. Our solution to this program is to integrate a Sun-powered Water Well into the villages of Africa. This Water Well is eco-friendly and environmentally safe. As opposed to similar Merry-go-round ...more »
Exposure to sunlight has been shown to deactivate #diarrhea-causing organisms in polluted drinking water. 3 effects of solar radiation are believed to contribute to the inactivation of pathogenic organisms. #1. UV-A interferes directly with the metabolism and destroys cell structures of bacteria. #2. UV-A (wavelength 320-400mm) reacts with oxygen dissolved in the water and produces highly reactive forms of oxygen (oxygen ...more »
The Africans water supplies are facing new threats; affordable, advanced technologies could make a difference for millions of people in Africa. Lack of clean water is responsible for more deaths in Africa than war. About 1 out of 6 people living today do not have adequate access to water, and more than double that number lack basic sanitation, for which water is needed. My idea is to suggest a technological ...more »
This product uses solar energy to desalination water in saline regions more especially in the deserts.
The system is based on the recovery of the moisture in the air passing through the fins of a cooled radiator. Cooling radiator is ensured by the compression / decompression of a gas through a Stirling engine solar free piston. The water recovered by a single radiator under normal conditions of African weather is on the order of 25 to 40 liters per day, this amount is doubled near the sea. The water quality even without ...more »
The pain and sufferings of 345 million in Africa and 743 in world has kicked off us to gear up latent humanity to start-up the social development project to bring back and sustain the smiling face of affected people. Safedrop is an innovative & Eco-friendly partnership enterprise that delivers Solar Water Pasteurizer to ensure safe drinking water from surface water replacing the contaminated water at affordable rate which ...more »
The SODIS method has been proven to be a simple and low cost method of purifying bacterial contaminated water in rural areas. My proposal here is to up-scale and streamline the SODIS method in the form of large water stations positioned at central locations within the communities. The entire system consists of the following 4 main points: 1. WATER COLLECT POINT: a floating weir is positioned in the lake or river where ...more »
