  1. 1. WaterAbundant clean water for everyone
  2. 2. Water Distribution
  3. 3. Water Distribution BreakdownSource Volume (km**3) Percent of fresh waterOcean, Seas, Bays 1,338,000,000Ice Caps, Glaciers, Permanent 24,064,000 68.7snowGround Water (fresh) 10,530,000 30.1Ground Water (saline) 12,870,000Soil Moisture 16,500 0.05Ground Ice, Permafrost 300,000 0.86Freshwater Lakes 91,000 0.26Saline Lakes 85,400Atmosphere 12,900 0.04Swamp Water 11,470 0.03Rivers 2,120 0.006
  4. 4. Water• One billion people lack access to safe drinking water• 2.6 billion lack access to basic sanitation• Half of all serious hospitalizations and disease are from unsafe drinking water• What if we solve this problem? – 135 million people live that wouldn’t otherwise – Nutrition improves – Several disease vectors are wiped out
  5. 5. Not just poor region problem• Aquifer depletion• Soil salinization• Irrigation – >80% of all water use is for irrigation, mostly of crops• River diversion• Infrastructure deterioration
  6. 6. Solution Aspects• Acquisition – Reclamation – Extraction• Conservation• Purification• Sanitation• Distribution• Irrigation
  7. 7. Acquisition• Distillation – Miracle Water Distiller – Water form the air• Desalinization – Graphenenano-filters• Energy sources – Wind – solar
  8. 8. Filtration, Desalinization
  9. 9. Water Distillation, Village Power
  10. 10. Purification• Michael Pritchards LifeSaver Bottle• Life Straw• Nanopousographene• Methods – Distillation – Ion exchange – Carbon adsorption – Filtration – Ultra-filtration – Reverse Osmosis – Electrodeionization – UV Radiation
