Access to drinking water

The water is the main source of life and today, around the world over 500 million people don't have access to potable water and another 1.6 million die every year lacking it.

The amount of fresh water on earth is limited and its quality is under constant pressure. Preserving the quality of fresh water is important for the drinking-water supply and food production.

In order to combat this problem, following years of research we have developed a filtration system that allows us to make drinking water from any kind of source of fresh water.

SOWAT©(System Open Water Advanced Technology) stops particles, pollen, parasites, bacteria and even viruses. The organic pollutants and mineral colloids are also eliminated.

Minerals vital for the human body remain.

According to WHO (World Health Organisation), access to drinking water in an emergency situation has to be of minimum 20 litres per person per day. SOWAT has the capacity to provide from 25 m3 to 100 m3 of drinking water per day, which means we can produce drinking water for 500 to 5,000 people.


Recently presented on the market and already with the best price-quality report, SOWAT is developed by a European team made up of researchers, pharmacists, and specialists in humanitarian crisis situations.

At the cutting edge of the filtering technology and unique by its format, SOWAT represents the new best adapted solution for crisis situations (refugees’ camps, natural crisis). It produces perfectly potable water from any fresh water source, for between 500 to 5,000 people.

SOWAT is the only technology that allows obtaining potable, clean water (no viruses or bacteria) without genetic material of bacteria (problem occurring in the case of UV treatments), at the same time preserving the minerals (which does not occur with the reverse osmosis treatment, which withholds all the minerals and produces distilled water).

Made up of elements that comply with the NSF/ANSI 61 standard (Drinking Water System Components - Health Effects) and ACS (Certificate of Sanitary Conformity), it has been validated by the International Filter Testing Services (IFTS) and complies with ISO 9001 and CE norms.
