The Clara Pur uses solar thermal radiation to make drinking water out of salt water or untreated ground or surface water
SDG’s of application
The Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label seeks to bridge the gap between ecology and economy, bringing together protection of the environment and financial viability to show that these solutions are not expensive fixes to problems, but rather opportunities for clean economic growth.

Scarcity of drinking water • 2/3 of our planet are covered with salt water • The CP produces drinking water by means of solar sea water desalination • In the pipeline there are desalination facilities for 8 billion litres of drinking water Contaminated Groundwater • Over 100 million people, e.g. in Tanzania, India, Bangladesh and China, drink from wells with contaminated water • The CP purifies groundwater of many toxic substances like arsenic and fluoride • Polluted Surface Water • A vast number of people is forced to drink polluted surface or brackish water • 80% of all diseases are caused by contaminated water • Every year 5 million people die due to polluted water • The CP purifies water from nearly all dangerous substances The Distribution Problem • Remote, rural areas that are located off-grid need to be supplied with drinking water • In many cases water has to be transported over hundreds of kilometres, e.g. by ship to Indonesia • The water cannot be consumed immediately after transport, but has to be treated, e.g. by boiling it • The CP produces drinking water at the point of use, which solves the distribution problem
