1st Place - University of Illinois (USA) in partnership with Safe Water & Aids Project (Kenya)
University of Illinois, Chicago - School of Public Health in partnership with Safe Water & Aids Project from Kenya developed a solar-powered drinking water ozonation project. This innovative project uses ozonation for the treatment of drinking water. It uses a microplasma technology to generate ozone onsite and in small quantities, using only solar power. It is the world’s first drinking water treatment system to use microplasma technology. It has a capacity of 500 litres per hour with an average output of 3,000-3,500 litres per day.
