Desolenator is a clean technology venture that has developed and patented what’s on track to becoming the most affordable and environmentally friendly method of water purification on the market.
"I think what resonates with me most is when you see people living without clean water and they're forced to scavenge for water and basically use up all of their time just doing that..."
“Over half of the world’s hospitals beds are occupied with people suffering from illnesses linked with contaminated water and more people die as a result of polluted water than are killed by all forms of violence including wars.”
Achim Steiner, Executive Director, UNEP
"The Desolenator is the best solution to overcome the global water crisis."
William Janssen, Founder
"This historic drought demands unprecedented action, We have to act differently. … The idea of your nice little green grass getting lots of water every day, that’s going to be a thing of the past.”
Jerry Brown, Governor of California
“California has about one year's worth of water left in its reservoirs”
Jay Famiglietti, Water Research, NASA
There is not enough water to go around. The causes are common knowledge - groundwater reserves are increasingly contaminated and becoming saline through pollution and rising sea levels. This, coupled with a growing population, the effects of climate change and industrialisation has created one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. 97% of the Earth’s water is in its oceans, but current desalination technologies are highly inefficient and dependent upon non-renewable sources of energy.
Our patented technology uses only solar power to purify water from any source, including sea water; which is especially critical in regions where natural groundwater reserves have been polluted or poisoned or where seawater is the only water source available. Desolenator has a lifespan of up to 20 years and requires very little maintenance; it uses no filters, no membranes, and no pre-treatment chemicals.
Desolenator is a clean technology venture that provides the first real solution to the global water crisis, with the vision to operate on a global scale from the outset. Our holistic approach to the challenge, working across public, private and third sectors, has enabled the development of a solution with the potential to expand multiple markets and improve the lives of thousands if not millions of people in a profitable and sustainable way.
