How Seawater Desalination Works

Publisert 1. mai 2013

Desalination is a complicated process, the Seven Seas Corp.* approached DaVinci Studio to develop an animation that simplified the explanation of the process. Taking a cue from Seven Seas we started with squiggly style animation to give the technical looking components a non-technical look. Bottom line is to go from engineering-speak to the layman’s level.

Desalination (also called “desalinization” and “desalting”) is the process of removing dissolved salts from water, thus producing fresh water from seawater or brackish water. Desalting technologies can be used for many applications. The most prevalent use is to produce potable water from saline water for domestic or municipal purposes.

14-Year-old is America’s Top Young Scientist: Her Solar-Powered Jug Purifies Water

Publisert 22. okt. 2012
A 14-year-old New York student was named “America’s Top Young Scientist” for inventing a solar-powered water jug that changes dirty water into purified drinking water.

Deepika Kurup not only had to surpass 9 finalists in science and math to win $25,000 from Discovery Education and 3M, she persuaded the judges with a dynamic five-minute LIVE presentation about the plight of a billion poor people who have no access to clean drinking water. (This video features her winning presentation.)

Her cost effective and sustainable water-purification system, which harnesses solar energy to disinfect contaminated water utilizes an innovative process designed to overcome current problems with portable purification.

How to purify large quantities of water with a food saver bag

Publisert 13. sep. 2012
Demonstrating how you can use a food saver type vacuum bag to purify 11.5 gallons of water using the SODIS water purification method. Bag should be filled with clear water and placed in direct sunlight for 6-8 hours. This method uses UV “ultra violet” light to kill bacteria and viruses in the water. This method will do noting for chemical contamination.
