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 a parabolic 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. + Parabosol The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
