Our solution's stage of development:Pilot
Shagara purifier water tank, Modular 2 in 1, stores and purifier, long lifetime, 99.9% effective, ergonomic, is used by gravity or solar pump, it can be used anywhere in the world, affordable to 0.1 cents per gallon, 45-day supply of water in emergency situations.
When the climatic phenomenon "El niño" arrived in the Central American region, facing the worst drought in its history, with little access to water and food, increasing the need for high-capacity water purifiers to purify water with sediment, distributing water filter, in rural and urban communities, collaborating with NGO´s and organized communities, discovering the need for a more effective product and storage, awakening resilience and innovation with new technologies to adapt to climate change.
Why our solution will solve the problem:
Our purifier water tank is able to turn wine into water.Obtaining 99.9% efficiency, 20,000 gallons long lifetime, does not need electricity, maintenance and housing is recyclable, sustainable auto-product, eliminates the use of wood, does not use any chemicals such as chlorine. Reduces 3 tons of C02 per year, generating $500 savings in consumption of purified water, it is a product that can be installed in your home, or can supply drinking water to a rural community with adaptations to pumping with renewable energy.
Our target outcomes:
Long Life: 60 Years Tank and 60 Months Purifier.
Technology: Ultra Filtration with Natural Matter.
Health: reduce gastrointestinal disease index
Food: Irrigation system for crops and cleaning food with purified water at low cost
Emissions: Sustainable production free emission Co2.
Wood: No consumption of wood to heat water
Energy: Available connection for solar pumping
Recyclable: All your materials can be recycled
Eco - Friendly: Self-sustaining design, reducing carbon footprint in manufacturing and equipment operation.
Affordable: Its weight and design allows for easy storage and distribution
Savings: Generates annual savings of US $ 1,000, in bottled water a year to a traditional family.
How we will measure our progress:

The regions we will benefit initially:
The technologies we employ:
Why our solution is unique:
Economic: market recognition skills and demands.
Social: 9 of 10 homes, need a water purifier tank.
Financial: the product is subject to credit finance.
Technological: We obtained 99.9% effectiveness with untreated water.
Design: New modern modular design, allows to adapt to different environments and connections
Emergency: Provides 45 days of secure water for natural disasters.
Technology-Readiness Level:6-8 (Demonstration)
Where we are located:
How we will sustain our team financially:
The cost of the gallon of purified water in Central America is US $ 2.00. If we leased our system, at a cost of U $ 1.00 a day, with the subtraction of a river or a nearby water well, we would save the consumer $ 1 per day, less physical wear, higher quality, quantity and cost-benefit.
The factors limiting our success:
Our risk is not getting full financing, to start our business model, and that other companies already established in the market, copy our product and establish in the market
How long we have been working on our solution:4 years
How long it will take to develop a pilot:3-6 months
How long it will take to scale beyond our pilot:12-18 months
