We are building drinkable water plants to meet the requirements of remote communities that don’t have the resources to operate and maintain conventional potabilization technologies. Remote communities can be complicated, they need simple, common, and mostly old-school components (the ones they have been in contact with most of their lives). Also, they need a way to financially sustain the operation of the plant, not relying on the drinkable-water buyer to pay for components.

We developed a social capacity building program where the community can produce local-added crafts products using distilled water to pay most of the operation costs.
