Parabosol is a portable solar-powered water treatment system for remote areas

12 de Abril, 2016

Over 1 billion people lack access to safe drinking water globally.

Although clean water is a basic human right, it continues to be a growing epidemic in the developing world, predominantly in remote communities.

Hakan Gürsu of Designnobis devised the Parabosol, a portable solar-powered water purification system for use in remote areas.

The system filters and purifies drinking water using aparabolic mirror that boils contaminated water at up to 400 degrees celsius.

After boiling, a set of sand and carbon filters catch sand particles and remove odor dissolved gases.

Parabosol can clean up to 170 liters of water in a single use.

The project was honored with the silver award at the 2014-2015 A’ Design Awards, and it was also a nominee in Design Index 2015.
