Basic concept: What is distillation? The action of purifying a liquid by a process of heating and cooling Therma Energy:Form of heating by employing electric heating or fuel burning or solar heating Solar Energy: Solar radiation is a form of renewable energy that is abundant and accessible in many areas in the world.Sunlight with wavelengths of 315-400 nanometers (nm) on the ultraviolet (UV) range of the electromagnetic ...more »
install solar powered pumps for a community of around 1500 househods drawing the water either from underground or from a nearby dam.
Long lasting water project can be built in communities for relatively small amount of money. Installation of borehole, that as a mini treatment plant, with a solar panel to generate power for pumping of water. As the water is pumping, it passes through the mini treatment plant before going to the storage tank for consumptions. This project is low cost effective with low maintenance cost. The water is treated and water ...more »
6. Solar: How can we leverage the power of the sun to purify water?
We can use solar water heaters.
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 »
Water can be purified by simply boiling it
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 »
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.
Using the sun to purify drinking water is a great solar project for the do-it-yourself. A solar-powered purification system the size of a microwave oven can yield up to 3 gallons of purified drinking water on a sunny day. Here’s what you need for a basic solar powered water purifier like the one shown in the figure: Wooden or sheet metal enclosure Reflective material like aluminum foil Black paint, used for barbeque ...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 »
