Sustainability

We aim for perfection

We work constantly to integrate consideration for the environment into our products. It is our aim to pollute as little as possible, no matter how measured. WaterStillar produces not pollution-free clean drinking water, but almost. The cradle to grave analysis will show a (very) small impact:

During its 20-year design lifetime, a WaterStillar system has a very little impact on the environment. Once manufactured and transported to the customer, the system does not pollute (no noise, chemicals, energy, toxic brine etc) and when it needs to be replaced, all materials can be recycled or disposed with no/little effect on the environment. The cradle to grave analysis and the 

The parts in our system that are in touch with water, we use food grade stainless steel, enamelled steel, silicone and glass. These materials does not release unwanted substances into the water and they can all be recycled. We use plastic components only when needed and then of the best food grade quality, we can buy. 

The manufacturing process is highly applicable for industrial production and we expect to manufacture as close to the market as possible. In future.  The negative emphasis on the environment can be kept to a minimum as well as the price for a system.

Carbon foot print reduction – case story from a hotel

WaterStillar Works solar powered systems will have a very positive effect on the carbon footprint and in this letter, we have tried to quantify how much.  Calculating this is difficult and can be discussed but the hotel had some numbers to consider and even use as documentation of the carbon footprint. Please ready through, get inspired and put in your own assumptions.

Noise and reflections

Normally you wouldn’t consider noise as a sustainability factor. We think it is. All WaterStillar systems are noiseless and in the same way to make it as discrete as possbile, we use matte paint to avoid reflections from the systems.

Chemicals

Distillation systems need to be descaled occasionally. We recommend the coffee machine descaling brand you can buy locally. Once done, it can be poured into the drain and with some flushing with fresh water it is harmless.

For sterilising pipes and water tanks, we recommend hydrogen peroxide or even better, a steam cleaner. Both are harmless when used correctly.
