The innovation of the SOLVATTEN Solar Safe Water System is in the combination of several well-documented methods of treating water, and in the design elements which maximise the efficiency of the treatment methods. Safe water for drinking (according to WHO guidelines for safe drinking water; <1 E-coli/100 ml of water) is produced and this has been demonstrated by independent verification studies since 2007.
SOLVATTEN has been designed specifically for people in developing countries, people who need safe water, and who have plenty of sunshine.
SOLVATTEN Solar Safe Water System uses energy from the sun to inactivate and kill the micro-organisms that cause water-borne diseases. The product’s functionality is based on three well-documented methods for treating water – filtration, pasteurisation and UV-disinfection. These methods have been chosen because, in combination, they can make water safe in a short time and by using only solar energy. The efficiency of SOLVATTEN is due to the synergetic effect of heat and UV light, and to the design of the units.
The materials in SOLVATTEN have been carefully selected, and these, together with the size and shape, make the water treatment process efficient.
