SolarDew - Introduction
In the future will there be enough drinking water for us all?
Everyday 850 million people have to worry about how they are going to provide clean drinking water for their families. The water available to them will become increasingly contaminated or saline and there are currently no cost-effective solutions to these enormous problems. This is not only the case in rural areas but also in fast growing cities, both in developing and developed countries. This situation is only getting worse. Water scarcity due to pollution, climate change, and population growth all mean that our traditional water sources are disappearing quickly with the result that people’s lives are ruined and their livelihoods destroyed. Thisis expected to affect 5 billion people by 2050. Buying water of unknown quality or producing more bottled water, than the 500 billion water bottles we are already producing each year, cannot be a sustainable solution to our drinking water problems.
A new source of clean drinking water – SolarDew
People are in need of a reliable, robust and cost-effective system for producing safe drinking water from the available local water sources, whether these are saline, chemically of biologically polluted. Hence, SolarDew assembled a diverse team of experts in the fields of business development, water management in developing countries and industrial design to address this growing need. Supported by well-known and first class rated university professors specializing in the fields of membranes, polymers, solar and water technology, SolarDew has developed a unique solution, a water purification and desalination product that can produce clean water using only solar energy. The product is easy to use, robust and extremely low in maintenance. It eliminates the need to transport water over long distances in order to obtain clean drinking water.
Building strong relationships with partners and customers
Initially, SolarDew will focus it sales on two stepping stone markets, Chile and Oman, which are also
gateways to a wider region. SolarDew will take a project-based approach to sell products to larger
clients such as NGO’s, governments and disaster relief organizations which are looking for desalination
solutions for their communities.
SolarDew will be active in these markets through a network of dedicated local partners/distributors and aims to stimulate local economic development by manufacturing and assembling locally, where possible, whist ensuring that the product is adapted to the needs and requirement of the local customers. Corporate interest in SolarDew’s technology from large water service suppliers and personal water purification equipment manufacturers has been rapidly growing, given the shift towards desalination, sustainability and point of use water supply. Together with interested parties SolarDew is discussing several strategic partnerships.
