A patented, scientifically proven Swedish invention, the SOLVATTEN® unit uses heat and UV from the sun, and a built-in filter, to purify contaminated water. SOLVATTEN® makes microbiologically contaminated water drinkable in 2-6 hours, depending on the weather. An indicator shows when the water is safe to drink. SOLVATTEN® is part of the WHO International Network to Promote Household Water Treatment and Safe Storage.
Providing SOLVATTEN® to households will help contribute towards sustainable development, through improved living standards, improved health, protection of the environment, and by making income-generating activities possible.
The portable 10-liter unit can improve the daily lives of millions of people who do not have access to safe drinking water, thereby contributing to the realization of the Millennium Development Goals.
