SMALL SCALE SOLAR WATER PURIFICATION DESALINATION

An Australian company, F-Cubed has designed a magnificent portable Solar Water Purification and DESALINATION plant that has no mechanical parts or filters to change.

 

Simply pour in water in the one end and clean water comes out the other side... up to 20 liters a day can be desalinated.

Locally Manufactured solar water pumps, makerere University

Ugandans lack clean water for their domestic activities including agriculture, livestock, industries and others yet there is plenty of sources of water like springs, lakes, rivers and groundwater. The problem is not that there is no water, it is because people do not have ways of delivering water from sources to their point of use. So, the low cost irrigation project (Makerere University, CEDAT) manufactures solar water ...more »

solar powered borehole coupled with an ultrafilrer

This method involves the construction of a borehole with a pump that uses solar energy to power it. The pumped water is plunged upwards into a reservoir tank after passing through four ultra filters which are installed near the tank. A small tap connected to a pipe coming from the tank is used for easy access of the water. The ultrafilters ensure removal of disease causing pathogens before the water enters the tank. this ...more »

Solar Powered Ultraviolet water treatment Device

SOLAR POWERED ULTRAVIOLET WATER TREATMENT DEVICE Introduction Ultraviolet or UV energy is found in the electromagnetic spectrum between visible light and x-rays and can best be described as invisible radiation. In order to kill microorganisms, the UV rays must actually strike the cell. UV energy penetrates the outer membrane, passes through the cell body then disrupts DNA stopping reproduction. UV treatment does not ...more »

Environmentally friendly water transportation for rural areas

Developed countries are used to having a supply of fresh, clean water piped straight into their houses for their convenience. In some African countries, however, especially rural areas there isn't any provision for the supply of drinking water. Women and children take water from rivers or lakes and carry this back to their house, which is very labour-intensive. I'm not dealing with the supply of fresh, clean water here ...more »
