During our tour of Deka a few weeks ago, I thought the most impressive project was the water purifier. This self contained device about the size of an air conditioner would purify 10 gal. of water an hour using only 500 watts of power! That is a factor of almost one-fiftieth of the energy to distill 10 gal of water. It will produce very pure drinking water from any water source including sea water and it requires no maintenance. Of all the good stuff we saw, that one really got me.
10 gallons doesn’t seem like much, but that is 240 gallons of safe drinking warer a day. That is enough to support a village or small community.
I think Dean and his group have done it again.
