Contaminated water and missing access to clean drinking water is a world wide and growing health crises. The human right for clean drinking water is a fundamental and basic pre-requisite to survive. Studies by the World Health Organization (WHO) prove that due to the lack of access to safe drinking water, an estimated 5 Million people, predominantly small children, die each year from diseases caused by water contaminated with bacteria and viruses. An estimated 2,5 Billion people get ill by contaminated water annually. More than 1,2 Billion people do not have access to clean drinking water.

The United Nations (UN) report that due to the growing number of people (approx. 7 Billion by 2012) and the unpredictable climatic change and resulting disaster developments, a dramatic water shortage is expected by the year 2050. During the UN Conference in 1992 in Rio de Janeiro, 178 Nations agreed to the common goal, to provide safe, clean and good quality drinking water to the entire world wide population. An UNESCO estimation shows, that only 0,0075% of the world wide water resources is clean water, but it is not equally distributed and equally accessible to all people.

The Solution

Trunz Water Systems has converted the vision of a simple self-sufficient water treatment system into practice. The compact, mobile water treatment and desalination systems are powered using integrated photovoltaics and wind generators. This means that there are virtually no boundaries to using this system anywhere in the world.
