Innovating through technology We saw the need for change, so through trials and testing, we designed an innovative process to unlock drinking water in parts of the world where access to water is limited, resources are scarce and wars are currently raging on. When fruit, including sugar cane, and vegetables are pressed to extract juice and then evaporated to make concentrate or sugar, they produce a large volume of water in parallel. Until recently, this aqueous liquid was discarded, often to environmental detriment. Our technology allows us to 'harvest' water by filtering and purifying this evaporative condensate to create the world's first plant-based pure water - 'Botanical Water', a name reflective of its new source. There is up to 3 trillion litres of available, potable water (from over 10,000 processors) every year that would have otherwise been discarded. With an abundance of potable water discovered, the challenge for us was how we would distribute it effectively on a global scale. Here formed the Botanical Water Exchange (BWX) - a global water trading platform utilising blockchain technology that efficiently connects buyers and sellers. Positively impacting people and the planet through accredited social and environmental projects was always front-of-mind for our team. The Botanical Water Foundation (BWF) was established to provide a frictionless and efficient way of delivering potable water to people who need it the most, at no cost, by regional and global food producers. Botanical Water Technologies will undoubtedly play a major role in alleviating the world's water problem by delivering clean and safe drinking water to 100 million of the world's most vulnerable people by 2025. With our innovation, it's possible to not just grow water but to have it flow sustainably to every corner of the world.
