Sustainable Water Treatment by Swiss Cleanwater GroupKim Weis Hansen, CEO Swiss Cleanwater Group
15 January 2013
Swiss Cleanwater Group contributed with the more technological approach towards a solution that could help provide millions with clean drinking water, whilst not needing vast amounts of chemicals or energy.
From the previous presentations at the seminar, it was clear that solutions such as desalination and reverse osmosis were frequently used, not by free will, but more because of lacking alternatives.

Below you can see the slides of the time-limited 15 minute presentation:
|We cannot survive without water... food we can do without for a couple of weeks, but water is something we must have.|
|There are no substitutes for water, you cannot switch water with cola or something different. Water is a resource.|
|Its not only us humans that need QUALITY water - its also so many other things that make everything in a world function.|
|We have less and less access to clean drinking water due to all types of water pollution.|
|If this is the total water supply....|
|Then less than this droplet is what we can drink.|
|...and these factors are just an eye-opener to why water problems are becoming bigger.|
|In our area in San Diego, the water prices have risen by 65%!!! We should think we were dealing with oil...|
|Other water treatment uses too many chemicals and too much energy.|
|Here are some of the common systems on the market that are used for water treatment.|
|We wanted to create a solution that could fill the gap of an environmentally friendly solution.|
|Output-wise this is where we would place the Swiss Cleanwater Machine.|
|These are just some of the benefits of Swiss Cleanwater Machines - see all here: |
|A quick overview of one of the three available machines.|
|This is what our core competency is.|
|One of our NGO cases from Ethiopia|
|A mobile water treatment case from Germany. See here for Mobile Water Treatment.|
|Its a global challenge we all need to face.|
|This is one of our patented water kiosks.|
|...perfect for disaster water treatment, and can be powered by solar power.|
|Remember the name ;-) we are here to stay...|
|You want to know more or find out how you can get clean water?|
The objective of the presentation was to show the various stakeholders present that it is possible to provide clean drinking water, through a new way of treating water.
The presentation did not go into technical details as this was not the right audience for that, if you are looking for a deeper explanation of how a Swiss Cleanwater Machine works, then you can read about it here: http://www.swiss-cleanwater-group.com/en/purification-of-water.html
