At JAMEBI we design and build sustainable technologies which combine low environmental impact with high levels of safety and security.
Water is our focus: providing high quality drinking water, safe from biological contaminants for everyone in sunny tropical countries.
Technical elegance is our design principle. Solar into healthcare is our mission. Robust water disinfection is our goal.
Over several years, thanks to testing in several countries and thanks to several talented people, we have achieved our dream of bringing clean water to people, powered by the sun.
Why is SUNLIFEWATER timely?
By 2030, the UN plans for everyone in the world to drink clean water. (UN-SDG 6.1) Fortunately, the UN budget for water, sanitation and health will be $38 billion in the next 5 years. Today, at least 2 billion people use a drinking water source contaminated with faeces.
Contaminated drinking water
• transmits diarrhoea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid, polio.
• now causes 502,000 deaths per year
Most diarrhoea deaths are in Africa & SE Asia. Today, in low-and middle-income countries:
• 38% of health care facilities lack an improved water source
• 159 million people rely on surface water.
• 844 million people lack even basic drinking-
Tragically, three-quarters of the people who die from dirty water are children under five.
So, we invented SUNLIFEWATER
We saw a global family and community health problem waiting to be solved, by using only local water and free solar energy, without buying bought-in chemicals nor costly filters.
Besides delivering low cost drinking water that is safe from pathogens, we also help to solve a global plastic waste problem. How?
During its life, one SUNLIFEWATER unit can eliminate the pollution impact of one million one-litre plastic water bottles.
SUNLIFEWATER means lives saved and pollution reduced.
