Solar Powered Desalination System

WHO WE ARE

Sun Fresh Water, LLC is located in Ormond By-The-Sea, Florida and is in partnership with the Center for Advanced Engineering Design and Development of The City University of New York for the purpose of bringing to market their inexpensive, scalable, portable, solar powered desalination system to address the global challenge of providing access to the global challenge of providing a sustainable solution for potable water.

” … a significant solution to the growing global challenge of providing access to potable water.”

– Professor Ali Sadegh

Founder of the Center for Advanced Engineering Design and Development of The City College of New York

A Life Changing Approach

The Sun Fresh Water Solution!

A potential technological clean energy solution for water purification and desalination is solar energy, in the form of solar water distillation {SWD). SWD is not a new process, but it has not received the attention that it deserves for technological advancement and/or scales. Therefore, the potential impact for human viability by theoretically increasing the amount of accessible fresh water 100 fold is staggering. Sun Fresh Water, LLC, in partnership with the Center For Advanced Engineering Design and Development of The City University of New York have developed a portable Solar Powered Water Purification System that provides the prospect of significantly increasing the availability of fresh water for human consumption and agricultural production.

In this new approach, the absorber material receives energy from below and transfers the heat to the evaporation chamber. As a pilot study, we have built basic units and conducted preliminary testing in Florida, with production of up to 3X from reported flat systems, and up to 2X from the reported CPC experiments. The expected energy savings are enormous when compared to the benchmark of the alternative ofreverse-osmosis, where energy usage is about 5 kWhe/m3.

The specific aim of this effort is to optimize this technology, characterize the performance, and develop a commercially ready unit for a large-scale deployment. Accordingly, we are seeking a partner who has both the resources to enable us to optimize our technology and develop a commercially ready unit, as well as to provide the ability to manufacture and distribute this technology globally.

The Time is now

The Water Crisis

Water is the basic necessity for human along with food and air. There is almost no water left on Earth that is safe to drink without purification.  Clearly, this makes the issue of access to potable water THE most critical health threat to the human condition and any viable solution to this threat must receive serious consideration.

The reality of this crisis is abundantly clear to people in several areas of the world. California is entering the fourth year of a record-breaking drought creating an extremely parched landscape. Strict conservation measures have been imposed statewide since a drought State of Emergency was declared by Govenor Jerry Brown in 2015. A drought in the Western Cape province of South Africa also began in 2015 and is resulting in a severe water shortage in the region, most notably affecting the city of Cape Town. Despite water saving measures, dam levels are predicted to decline to critically low levels, and the city has made plans for “Day Zero”, when the municipal water supply will largely be shut off.

Water on Earth

Only 1% of Earth’s water is in a fresh, liquid state, and nearly all of this is polluted by both diseases and toxic chemicals.

World Population

About two-thirds of the world’s population faces water scarcity for at least one month during the year – 4 billion people!

Loss of Life

Between 6 and 8 million people perish annually due to lack of access to potable water and inadequate sanitary conditions from lack of water for sanitation.

No Safe Water

Today, nearly 1 billion people in the developing world do not have access to water that is safe to drink without proper purification methods available to them.

This map provides graphic evidence of the seriousness of the global challenge for a sustainable source of potable water.

Concept of Linear Concentration SDW System

Initial Linear Heat Tube Cross-section

A work of art

The System & Product Testing

THIS SYSTEM is a novel optimal concentration solar distillation system where we employ a linear solar thermal concentration with adaptive focal point i.e., linear and parabolic Fresnel system. The proposed evolutionary SDW is portable, scalable, and of high production. Specifically, the proposed SWD takes advantage of linear concentration, and optimizes water production in the absorbing chamber. Unlike the conventional and CPC systems, in this new approach the absorber material receives energy from below and transfer the heat to the evaporation chamber.
PRODUCT TESTING over the last five years confirms the observation of Professors Ali Sadegh and Jorge Gonzalez that the system is 3 to 5 times more effective than the status quo. With planned improvements including the incorporation of nanotechnology covered by our Pending Utility Patent, it is projected that the system will produce >14L/m2/day.

CENTER FOR ADVANCED ENGINEERING DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

Making a National Impact

Established in 1999, The Center for Advanced Engineering and Development (CAEDD) conducts, coordinates and promotes interdisciplinary design oriented, applied engineering research and development for industry. It also encourages and fosters interdisciplinary engineering design and manufacturing education by the academic Departments in the School. In addition, the Center serves as an outreach and referral service for small to large industrial firms in New York City seeking assistance with technical problems.

The challenge of intense competition in the global marketplace has created a demand in industry for high risk, but powerful new technologies. This has resulted in calls for partnerships and cooperation between industries, and universities. The Grove School of Engineering at CCNY, being the largest school of engineering in New York City and the City’s only public school of engineering, has a great potential to respond to this need.

The purpose of CAEDD is to embark on this urgently needed endeavor by mobilizing the substantial intellectual resources of the School of Engineering faculty. The Center aims at the diverse and interdisciplinary nature of the contemporary technological enterprise in the areas of computer applications, product design and advanced manufacturing systems by drawing talents from all of the departments in the Grove School of Engineering.
