italian designer gabriele diamanti has developed ‘eliodomestico’ a solar-powered water distiller made from terracotta, recycled plastic and anodised zinc. the device produces 5 litres of drinking water daily and is one of 12 finalists in the prix émile hermés 2011 competition. compared to traditional solar stills, ‘eliodomestico’ is designed to function without filters nor electricity, and requires minimal maintenance. using traditional technologies, the system has no negative environmental impact and will create positive outcomes for the local economies because it’s to be produced by local craftsmen. taking from archetypal forms and materials,

 

the distiller is easy to use: in the morning fill the water tank with water from a local source and in the evening collect clean, evaporated and re-condensed water in a portable basin placed underneath the tank.

  • I would love to introduce this system in my country; is it possible that we can built this here?
    Do we need to pay for the instructions and design? How much will this cost?
    please let us know.
    Gracias,

  • Ray has an excellent point. I would love two of them as a backup for my houseboat’s water supply. Many more americans would buy them for emergencies, and the profits could help supply them to less developed situations where they might save lives.

  • I would love to purchase one. I live on the ocean and would use it frequently as an Eco source of fresh water. Please consider offering the Eliodomestico for public sale. The monetary funds could be used to supply individual units to those less financially able.

  • en mi pais hay unos filtros semejantes, bellisimos se llama artesania de la chamba, viendo esto me anime a comprar uno, los de colombia son tradiciones indigenas y el recipiente alto es poroso haciendo que el agua baje al recipiente bajo por su porosidad.
