Where Time is a Frequency and Space is a Holographic Unity
Designer Cynthia Lam On The Graywater Bioremediation Frontier
17-year-old Cynthia Lam of Melbourne, Australia wants to help people living without access to clean water and electricity -- and has developed a device that can purify water and generate electricity using solar power.
The inventrix is now bringing her potentially life-changing invention, which she calls H2Pro, to a global stage...
The H2Pro device is made up of two parts -- an upper unit for photocatalytic water-purification and hydrogen-generation and a bottom unit where additional water filtration takes place.
"I think people around the world don't really understand how serious water pollution and the energy crisis are. I'd really like to finalize the design, because it could potentially help people in developing countries. It would be great to have clean water and electricity supplied sustainably, without needing any outside help. It would be awesome."
With the H2Pro, Cynthia aims to tackle two problems at once: how to provide clean water and electricty to the many people around the world who have neither. Currently 780 million people lack access to clean water, while 1.2 billion live without electricity. The H2Pro could change that using photocatalytic technology, which simultaneously purifies water and generates electricity using only sunlight.
Design Outlaws is the outgrowth of the work of the Knossus Project.
Since 1989,, Knossus has been dedicated to seeking out and creating things that will make the world a better place in which to live. Specifically, our efforts have centered around the development of a sustainable environment, renewable energy, and environments that are not only ecologically friendly, but are artistically vibrant. This has resulted in a rich array of products and projects including:
With the Design Outlaws site, Knossus are hoping to create a meeting point for people with like minds regarding building a sustainable future.
