When the well is dry, we know the worth of water – Benjamin Franklin
From what we see as a global issue which is causing chaos at major corners of the countries during summers, we believe that, water is not properly taken care of. The sounds of Cape Town water crisis by now should have sent an early indication of water scarcity.
Fortunately, we have a few solutions that are currently in place for tackling the global water issues. With Technology being the fore-front, path has been established for a water secured future.
Let us now look at Technologies involved that could help and impact the future generations in the water filtration process from small scale to large scale.
Mini Water Filtration System
Mini Water Filtration system from Sawyer is a giant leap waiting to swing its arms to the world. A device that weighs not more than 2 ounces is capable of filtering 100,000 gallons of water with close to 99% of bacteria removal. A device that is need of the hour. Though its going to be a tedious task for the mass production of the device, it is set to do wonders in terms of providing access to safe drinking water for millions of people across the world.
It’s a fact that the world is build around water. But, we still lack access to clean water. Because, the process of purifying salt water to drinkable water is never ending and is quite expensive.
Out of the blue, VICI Labs has developed a device than can pull out moisture from air to create water. Crazy as it might sound, but its happening in an underground chamber. The device is used to blow air into the underground chamber that eventually creates water.
Janicki Omni Processor
This is one of the craziest way of producing water. I was taken aback initially about producing clean water from human-feces. But, when you have Bill Gates consuming the produced water and saying good things about it, it’s hard to ignore.
Well, it’s a huge machine undoubtedly. And It does plenty of things and water being the major production, it surprised me as much as it did for electricity and ash. Janicki Bioenergy is set to deliver big things in the years to come.
Variable Electro Precipitator
A very effective and affordable way of water purification through electrocoagulation. Variable Electro Precipitator can filter the minute contaminants that normal filter fails to identify, and these are easy to install and easily customizable.
Personal Conservation Tech
As much as we are talking about Technology helping us in surviving the impossible water scarce situation, it is also equally important at an individual level to have a tap at our water usage. It is always suggested to have a track of how much water is required to use in a day instead of wasting gallons.
We already have ample number of smart meters to have a track of water usage. All it needs is a vision and be able to adapt.
