An Efficient Solar-Hydrogen Powered Water Purifier: The HYDRA
A trio of inventors from The Essential Element (hint: H2O) have unveiled the first working model of an invention that has the potential to affect peoples throughout the world, especially people who do not have access to the a basic need that most of us take for granted... clean drinking water. Additionally, the Hydra, can reach people in disaster situations and clean the sludgiest water on site to make it potable.
The portable water-purification plant, the perfect size for a shipping container (16' x 7'), takes sludge water and splits it into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen is reserved to power the HYDRA that is completely solar-energized, the water is filtered through a state of the art portable purification system and the oxygen is saved for use in hospitals and local emergencies. The HYDRA can eliminate bacteria such as cholera, dysentery, botulism, e-coli, Giardia, and viruses such as hepatitis, Cryptosporidium, and Microspoidia from the water; these water contaminants are responsible for thousands of deaths in the remote areas of many countries.
Here, The Essential Element provides a demonstration of its new invention.
