Solvatten is a portable 11 liter solar powered water purifier that makes unsafe water drinkable in a simple container in 2-6 hours. Solvatten is made of durable plastic and has an average lifespan of 7-10 years. The product is able to produce both safe and warm water up to 75°C for its user. The device is portable which means that those forced to travel long distances to obtain water are able to this more easily.
Solvatten is typically used in situations where water resources are scarce and prone to contamination. It enables children and their families living without safe water to improve their situation. They are built to last an entire childhood and Solvatten hopes to provide a solution which will bring lasting change to communities.
Solvatten has a total of 44 different projects with different partners. 18 of the projects are based in Kenya, 9 in Uganda, 3 in Tanzania and the rest in 15 other countries around the world. Solvatten aims to provide clean water worldwide and has more than 100,000 users globally. As Solvatten is able to provide clean and safe water, they hope that the consequences will include improved hygiene and reduced medical treatment costs in the developing world.
