Elemental Water Makers is a solar desalination company based in The Hague. They use sustainable energy resources (solar, wind or hydro) to provide reverse osmosis technology in order to turn seawater into freshwater that can be used for a variety of things. They have multiple ‘desalination solutions’ to fit the needs of customers that are outlined on their website.
This is a sustainable initiative as they are taking a process that typically requires a lot of fossil fuels (reverse osmosis to remove the salt from seawater), and make it more sustainable by using renewable energy sources. In addition, by taking desalinizing seawater this company helps ensuring sufficient drinking water around the world, without overexploiting or degrading existing freshwater stocks.
