STREAM Disinfection

Our STREAM system will produce enough chlorine to treat 240,000 liters (60,000 gallons) of water per day at a chlorine dose of 2.5 mg/l. This system operates on 110/220 VAC or a 12 VDC source such as a car battery or solar panel. The system is compact and robust, the size of a briefcase. At maximum capacity, the system could treat enough water to fill 20L jerry cans for 11,500 families at...

Our STREAM system will produce enough chlorine to treat 240,000 liters (60,000 gallons) of water per day at a chlorine dose of 2.5 mg/l. This system operates on 110/220 VAC or a 12 VDC source such as a car battery or solar panel. The system is compact and robust, the size of a briefcase. At maximum capacity, the system could treat enough water to fill 20L jerry cans for 11,500 families at a daily cost of $1.38, or $0.00012 per day per family. This system is also ideal for surface decontamination. USAID has conducted an environmental assessment on the system enabling it to be used in USAID funded programs.

Our innovations are providing safe water to our clients, as well as reducing the transmission of disease in medical centers. NGOs have purchased hundreds of systems to prevent the spread of waterborne disease and to reduce the rate of infection in medical facilities in low income settings throughout the planet. People love our technology and the safety it provides, especially mothers responsible for their family’s health and government officials tasked with meeting health standards. No one wants to drink water with disease-causing microorganisms, and people in low-income settings need a way to treat their water in an affordable and sustainable manner. Our technology addresses these key criteria very effectively.

Problem

Provides low cost, long term, sustainable, safe water and surface sanitation to communities, schools, and medical centers

}

Solution

Distribution of low cost water treatment devices that only use salt as a consumable and will last over 10 years providing consistent quality chlorine, the gold standard for water disinfection and surface sanitation.

Target Beneficiaries

People in low income settings, disasters, hostile zones, communities, orphanages, schools, medical centers, and any other setting where safe water is needed - irregardless of age, gender, ethnicity, religion, etc

Competitive Advantage

Filters have been used extensively. They clog and fail without notice and require maintenance and periodic replacement. When they fail, they provide no indication that they have failed and the user is drinking bad water without knowing it. There is no disinfectant residual with filters. Our low-cost device is not a filter but a device that provides disinfection and an on-going disinfectant residual in the storage container. Our device has no on-going cost other than common salt. There is nothing to replace. It is rugged and built to military standards. The disinfectant is far less expensive than bottled chlorine and is generated on site, eliminating transportation and logistics issues. The disinfectant produced can be used both to make water safe to drink and to decontaminate surfaces, particularly relevant to reduce transmission of COVID-19 or other dangerous pathogens.
