Idea Details

Idea Name: S-Waters
Slogan: Water by sunlight, Eezy peezy
Startup Domain: Clean Water Clean Water by renewable energy
Abstract:
    Our project “Solar driven Membrane Distillation Unit” aims to improvise the distillation technology with only solar energy to purify the water in an efficient and economic way.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    844 million people lack even a basic drinking-water service, including 159 million people who are dependent on surface water. Globally, at least 2 billion people use a drinking water source contaminated with faeces. By 2025, half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   *In industries for the treatment of water as many of the toxic chemicals can be filtered by using the same membrane distillation technique, *Can be used in the areas where water is too salty to use for daily home routine use to remove salts,*very economic process for the initial treatment of water
How will the solution works
    Solar energy (heating water in flat plate solar collector) will be used to heat water and steam is passed through hydrophobic membrane by creating flux,24 Liters per square meter by hour water can be produced with more than 99% purity by using rays from sunlight.Steam produced will be condensed by using permeate water and heat recovery system will also be used to pre heat feed water.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Companies producing devices to purify sea water for drinking and other purposes but our device will be easy to use with use of only solar energy as source,it can produce water with more than 99% purity and its the most economic way to purify sea water till now.
