Before the F Cubed water purification solution in Maddhyabil Village, people needed to travel two hours to collect safe drinking water after the 2009 cyclone Aila destroyed all water facilities in the village.
SOLAR, NOT CARBON, IS THE SOLUTION TO WATER PURIFICATION. OUR GOAL IS TO PROVIDE CLEAN DRINKING WATER TO THE UNDER SERVED, ELIMINATE WATER BORNE DISEASES AND DRAMATICALLY REDUCE CARBON EMISSIONS. PETER JOHNSTONE, FOUNDER AND CEO, F CUBED
THE IDEA BEHIND F Cubed creates cost-effective, state-of-the-art solar stills that use sustainable, renewable solar energy for water treatment. The panel’s simplistic, modular and robust design is targeted at developing countries with the most remote and isolated regions, and allows for fast and easy installation with no tools or prior training. F Cubed water panels can process some of the most contaminated waters to produce pure, clean drinking water and a secondary stream of UV-disinfected, filtered hot water for cleaning. F Cubed’s system is not limited to just the domestic market, it can also be applied to the treatment of industrial wastewater for meeting safe-discharge standards and to create a new industry of sustainable salt-harvesting by recapturing the flow-through water for further processing. This enables a Zero Liquid Discharge System with smaller environmental footprints.
