To address environmental challenges while enabling economic growth, Bertrand Piccard has launched, through the Solar Impulse Foundation, the challenge to select 1000 solutions, that can protect the environment in a profitable way and present them to decision-makers to fast-track their implementation. A way to take the success of the solar-powered flight around the world further.
MYWATER hydration stations use nanofiltration to produce drinking water from any source of water. Reinventing public taps, this solution offers a new service for sustainable water consumption aiming at reducing the use of single-use plastic water bottles.
By using fast-flow nanofiber filters, hydration stations capitalize on a technology originally developed by the NASA to provides safe water, free of chemicals or microplastic while being an extremely low maintenance and long-lasting technology.
MYWATER encourages people to refill their bottle at hydration stations instead of buying single-use plastic water bottles. Addressing both the lack of access to drinking water and the management of single-use plastic water bottle waste, MYWATER is a sustainable solution to supply public areas with a high concentration of people such as city centres, universities, airports and many more.
