The problem and how we are working to fix it

According to the World Health Organisation, 2.2 billion people do not have access to safe drinking water leading to sickness and in too many cases deaths. Some boil to clean contaminated water, but this has a negative effect on the environment leading to significant CO2 emissions and deforestation.

Many good purification methods exist, but they are all prohibitive expensive for end-users, who are often among the poorest people on the planet. SolarSack is the only non-chemical water purification solution that is affordable to people, who have less than $5 a day.

The Technology
How the Solarsack works

Solarsack’s purification technique is based on the 25 year old solar water disinfection technology, which has been endorsed by the World Health Organisation as a safe way to purify drinking water. It works by harnessing UVA and UVB rays as well as heat from the sun. These three processes combined kill more than 99,99 % of the dangerous pathogens in water.
