Supplier News: Coke, Deka collaborate to provide water

As reported here:

“The Coca-Cola Company has partnered with Deka Research & Development Corporation to deliver millions of liters of clean drinking water to schools, health clinics and community centers in rural regions of Africa and Latin America in 2013.”

“Deka’s Slingshot water purification system (pictured) uses a vapor compression distillation system that runs on low levels of electricity. The system boils and evaporates any dirty water source — river water, ocean water and even raw sewage — and then allows the pure water to condense and be collected.”

“One Slingshot unit can purify up to 300,000 liters of water each year, producing 10 gallons of clean water an hour while consuming less than 1 kW of electricity, according to Deka.”
