INTRODUCTION TO THE SURVIVORSTILL

 In a natural or man-made disaster, water becomes the most important element on earth in sustaining life! In the aftermath of an earthquake- lack of water or polluted water becomes the major cause for death!

 No one seems to be prepared for a major disaster by either storing up a food and water supply or having a method of purifying seriously polluted water. 


The SurvivorStill will produce ½ gallon of pure water per hour from any water source, including the ocean or even a sewer, utilizing any source of heat. Around 700 million people in 43 countries suffer today from water scarcity.

  •  Within just 10 years, 1.8 billion people will be living in countries or regions with absolute water scarcity, and two-thirds of the world's population could be living under water stressed conditions.

  •  Water scarcity already affects every continent. Around 1.2 billion people, or almost one-fifth of the world's population, live in areas of physical scarcity, and 500 million people are approaching this situation. Another 1.6 billion people, or almost one quarter of the world's population, face economic water shortage (where countries lack the necessary infrastructure to take water from rivers and aquifers).

  • Water scarcity is one of  the main problems to be faced by many societies and the world in the 21st century. Water use has been growing at more than twice the rate of population increase in the last century. Although there is no global water scarcity as such, an increasing number of regions are chronically short of water.
  • Water scarcity is both a natural and a human-made phenomenon. There is enough fresh water on the planet for seven billion people but it is distributed unevenly and too much of it is wasted, polluted and unsustainably managed.
