Because of the global population growth more and more freshwater is needed on Earth. Freshwater is an indispensable material of life but unfortunately nowadays it is becoming more and more difficult to get it. In the near future priority of human needs will be inverted and among others, freshwater will be appreciated. It will be more important than oil or precious metals. Rain is the initial, the most important and purest, renewable source of the freshwater cycle — a much better choice than any other source such as lakes, rivers or mineral waters from underground. The technology we are working on represents a high ethical value as it turns rain into the highest quality drinking water in a pure and natural way of processing. It will provide access to affordable clean water for small and big scale users, from families to big companies, leaving the smallest possible ecological footprint in the process.
So how exactly does it work you ask? IVANKA itself refers to the multi-stage process (the water passes through both special roofing tiles and a bioconcrete-lined holding tank before making its way to your drinking glass) as being “complex” and that the pH-softening concrete itself has “bio-compatible influences” on water.
