are working on a petition project, and I have jumped on board ! She is advocating against the Water Bottle Industry, and their current pricing of water, and advocating for them to use money and resources to find, and create water generation in countries around the world.
Very neat, go sign the petition ! They are starting something pretty interesting.
In the long run, I am looking at doing this as a part of SEED: http://mb-soft.com/public3/water503.html
Essentially it uses the laws of science (ooooh) to create a enclosed system using evaporation (distilling) to create clean water for people. The cost is low, the power generation is none, and it is a simple process to create and maintain in various enviroments. They have the calculators to predict how much water a system can create in particular enviroments and have examples of both single family and village systems. It is very scientific, but at the same time simplified so basically anyone can set it up ! Instructions on building are provided, and it is easy to maintain and implement. I am interested in trying to implement this in Sierra Leone, as it has tropical environments and access to seawater in many regions.
It has the capacity to create up to 1,000 liters a day for approximately 400 dollars. Essentially that gives 2 liters per person, for a village of 500 people, which is not too bad. By creating 2 or 3 of these systems (hey, evoke is giving out 1,000 dollar prizes folks) you could easily meet the needs of a small community.
