Sustainability

We aim for perfection

We work constantly to integrate a sustainable consideration for the environment into out water purification products. It is our aim to pollute as little as possible, no matter how pollution is measured. WaterStillar produces clean drinking water in an almost pollution-free way. The cradle to grave analysis will show a very small impact: 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. During its expected 20-year lifetime, a WaterStillar system therefore has a minimal impact on the environment.

The parts in our system that are in touch with water use food grade stainless steel, enameled steel, silicone and glass. These materials do not release unwanted substances into the water and they can all be recycled. We use plastic components only when strictly 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. This way, 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. In the same philosophy, to make our products as discrete as possible, we use matte paint to avoid light 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.
