Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink

ENGINEERING - The story of the most precious resource of all

The problem

Water is precious, but it’s getting more and more expensive to move it from the places we don’t want it, to the places we do. The utility companies have high-energy costs from the aeration of wastewater to the maintenance of water reservoirs. Flood management has become an additional burden. The pumping needed during the UK’s 2012 floods, cost utility companies millions in extra diesel and electricity costs. 

The solution

This company of designers and engineers is working on the development of a new pumping system. It aims to be pollution-free, with no fuel or electricity needed. It uses only water power, has minimum moving parts, zero energy requirements, zero running costs and zero maintenance. You can't beat that.
