The Solaqua is a robust, environmentally friendly and aesthetic device which uses solar disinfection (SODIS) to provide clean water
The Solaqua has a simple design and is made from recyclable plastics
The Solaqua uses UV and infrared rays from the sun to kill pathogens in contaminated water
Raw, contaminated water is poured into the Solaqua and filtered into five bottles which are laid on the ground so the sun's rays can disinfect the water
While clean, safe water is in short supply in much of Africa, there's no shortage of sun. The Solaqua is a nifty portable device that uses the sun's rays to purify contaminated water. Through innovative use of readily available materials, it carries, disinfects and stores water, providing a safe, environmentally sustainable source of water for rural communities.
