In Gaza, one man wields solar power to purify water, Fayez Al-Hindi
According to “ajplus“
This man has a solution to Gaza’s water crisis , Meet Fayez _ He’s purifying and desalinating water using solar energy
Fayez: Sunshine is readily available in our country, thank God.
Based on this, i decided to create apurifying system through distillation to produce drinking water.
In Gaza “90% of the water is undrinkable due to pollution and high levels of salinity”
Fayez’s home system produces up to 2.6 gallons of clean water a day, enough for his home and family
Fayez: i did the distillation, as you can see. the water evaporates onto the Solar panels, then the purified water falls into the basin -Even if it is seawater, which is salty, it will produce desalinated water.
Gaza’s water infrastructure has been severely damaged by israeli attacks. The Coastal municipalities water utility tested the water produced by Fayez’s home system
The result of the test was fascinating. Distillation is an oldmethod, but ehat is new about it is that he used solar power to get this water. Fayez now plans to help others set up similar systems.
