Non-Coastal Water Markets
Produce water in the city - on the rooftopsCleaner water, less water distribution costs, increased resilience for citizens
At 50-100 km distance from the coast, capex for distribution exceeds that of the desalination plant itself. Desalination is not the answer for added water.
By creating local water production within the city, water supply can be added without investing heavily on distribution networks.
More local water production from the sky and smaller distribution networks reduces investment costs and increases resilience.
Many buildings throughout the city can be self-sufficient on water, reducing pressure on groundwater, eco-system and distribution networks.
Limited Water Options for Inland Regions
60% of the world population lives farther than 100 km from nearest coast. Some areas are more water stressed than others. These people have few options for added water supply.
Desalination cannot help inland markets cost-efficiently because of the distribution difficulties. Groundwater is over-exploited or decreasing. More local solutions are needed.
Drupps offers an attractive option for creating local, small-grid and cost-efficient supply of clean and sustainable drinking water.
Atmospheric water transports itself to the user by the wind, reducing distribution costs. It is quick to setup and can be installed on any horizontal surface with free access to air. Sounds easy? It is.
