These children from northwest India – Gujarat – are among the billion people the UN says are killing themselves with the water they use for drinking and cooking. Their water originates on high mountains and by the time it gets to them it has picked up so much fluoride that it interferes with their bone formation as they grow. Just a few liters of good water every day could make a difference. Suns River uses ...Read Full Post »

Our solar desalination technologies, some of which are covered by joint patents between KII and University of Texas El Paso (UTEP), was entered into a worldwide contest to find the best renewable desalination approach for small farmers. The sponsors were the US, Switzerland and Netherlands governments and they received 69 entries from 29 countries.
Below, KII CEO Hill Kemp (in the white hat) explains the Solar Desalination Process to some of the visitors to the Desal Prize ...Read Full Post »

While deserts are seriously short of water and Suns River meets that need, there is another commodity the desert is equally short on. Shade. There are very few places which are sufficiently shaded from the strong desert sun and almost none where the soil can be cultivated. The Suns River Still creates a space beneath the Still panels and on its northern side which GETS CONTROLLED DIRECT SUNLIGHT.
This means that the residents of the desert not only get a source of cl...Read Full Post »

US BUREAU OF RECLAMATION PROCESS CERTIFICATION
The Bureau of Reclamation, along with others, wondered of the Suns River Still could really produce distillate at rates 4 - 5 times the classic solar still for the same area. In December, 2012, just a few days before the winter soltice - the worst solar day of the year - Suns River conducted a monitored test run at the Bureau's BGNDRF site in Alamogordo, NM, USA. The weak winter sun delivered ...Read Full Post »

Balloons over the desert.
Nothing short of a revolution in water science application has arisen from the New Mexico desert near Alamogordo. At the US Bureau of Reclamation desalination research site something mankind has pursued for more than 2,000 years was accomplished. Using simple, direct sunlight the KII/Suns River team produce...Read Full Post »
