Project Summary

This project aims to provide safe drinking water to communities who rely on unsafe water sources. The consortium is carrying out a technological development programme to advance three applications based on solar disinfection., in parallel a social sciences programme has been structured to make sure the technologies are adopted by the local communities with the support of the local authorities and in an economically sustainable way;

  1. A solar rainwater reactor,
  2. A solar Jerrycan – the WATERSPOUTT will develop, pilot and commercialise a 20 litre jerrycan, and lastly,
  3. Solar Ceramic Disinfection, very popular due to a perceived technology basis, the project will endeavour to combine the effectiveness of SODIS with the acceptance of ceramic water filtration.
