How does your idea apply new technologies to make agriculture and water systems more resilient in the face of climate threats?
The HPWP is scalable removes metals, fluoride, TSS and all pathogens. Arsenic being one of the most prevalent contaminants is causing arsenosis in people and going up the food chain by crops bioaccumulating the contaminant, such as rice. Common contaminants such as TSS from sediment, arsenic in the water (irrigation and drinking) can easily be removed. Our technology is made from the second largest natural resource on Planet Earth, chitin (crab and shrimp shells) and can be sourced regionally.
This is a first generation prototype. We have the engineering almost completed to go to the next prototypes, which can lead to mass production. The human powered water purifier can be for an individual, a family, portable, human/solar/wind powered, mounted on a bike so pedal power and can purify both contaminated fresh water or sea water by adding a mother module. With countries selling their water rights for cash (Blue Gold-Barlow), the people need this technology to ensure they have clan water
The human powered water purifier (hpwp) was engineered originally for the U.S. Army/Marine Corp. to deliver 2.5 L/minute with a device that mounts in a pack for a soldier. We
