As the global population grows, there is an increasing need to balance all of the competing commercial demands on water resources so that communities have enough for their needs.
The access of drinking-water is major concerns throughout the world. According to the WHO, nearly 2.1 billion people globally use a drinking water source contaminated with feces. By 2025, half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas.
Also, the contaminated water and poor sanitation are linked to transmission of diseases such as cholera, diarrhea, dysentery, hepatitis A, typhoid, and polio. Inadequate management of urban, industrial, and agricultural wastewater means the drinking-water of hundreds of millions of people is dangerously contaminated or chemically polluted.
There is a need for safe drinking water for everyone in any part of the globe which might not be possible due to rising air and water pollution. Many corporates and social organization work for new innovative technologies and devices which can help people to get the basic right, i.e. potable water.
Solar-Powered WatCase Water Purifier
A social organization WatCase has now developed a portable and sustainable device which can filter water from any natural source to drinkable water.
WatCase with a mission to ‘give drinkable water where can’t be’, aims to help many people who don’t have access to clean water at remote locations.

This renewable energy powered filter can be placed at any corner of your home and be confident that the water is 100% clean and drinkable! It has a water sterilization property which is done with a silver ion generator. In addition, these silver ions increase immunity for people in difficult situations, so it can just help your body.
WatCase is the first fully portable water purifier. Using a silver ion generator it can clean up to 80 liters of water per day which is enough for about 20 people in an emergency situation.
What is Silver Ion Generator?
According to the company, the basic principle of the SIG – It’s an electric apparatus to eliminate all kinds of bacterial, microbial colon, waterweeds melted and existing into the water.
Composed of a semiconductor that automatically sends a direct electric current at a regular rate, silver anions are generated. These anions effective destroy all bacteria, microbes, and viruses that exist in water.
The SIG in-line sanitizer is easy-to-install, has an extremely long lifespan, and cost-effective to replace. Internationally, the use of silver as a sanitization agent is approved in countries like Japan (under 50 ppb) and from authorities like the WHO (100ppb). Silver has no toxicity and is able to destroy these microbial impurities via a process called ‘Origdynamic Action’.
It’s compact, portable, solar-energy powered device that can supply drinking water by ultra-filtration and sterilization of any kind of water: lake water, river, flood water, seawater, or any natural source of water.
The capacity is awesome, it has autonomy of about 6-8 hours in the absence of Sun and can provide up to 160 liters of drinking water per day which could satisfy the need for about 50 people in extreme situations. It works on the 100% solar energy and can also operate with a 12V car battery.
Its application includes extreme situations, such as natural calamities, shipwrecks, expeditions, remote areas, military, and other social causes. But can also be successfully used for domestic use or camping opportunities in isolated regions without drinking water and electricity.
You can support their upcoming crowd-funding campaign scheduled at Indiegogo for this eco-friendly product and bring this project to life.
Technology will not cease to amaze us! Many of us in Africa and other remote areas will find this helpful. Clean water is sometimes hard to find in this part of the world. It could significantly reduce the spread of diseases in rural/remote areas.
It will help us purify the water and the fact is that we get to use the free source of energy to power it, solar energy. So every home should get this clean technology product.
