Watercone gets funding – yay for the good guys…


We featured the very cool Watercone low cost water purifier and desalination device a while back, saddened by the lack of any investment to get this to commercial production. Well, the good news is the announcement of a partner – Tinox GmbH from Munich – who’ve agreed to start mass production and worldwide distribution later this year. Oh and it’s won some awards along the way too. Excellent!

 The Watercone is a solar powered water desalinator that takes salt or brackish water and generates freshwater. It is simple to use, lightweight and mobile. The technology is simple in design and use and is discribed by simple pictograms. With max. 1,6 liters a day the Watercone is an ideal device to cover a childs daily need of freshwater. UNICEF: “every day 5000 children die as a result of diarrhea coused by drinking unsafe water”
