Sustainability Aspects: Drinkwater is a scarse commodity in every more regions. This machine changes sludge, another problem especially in the developing world and growing cities, in drinkwater.

The Omniprocessor can produce up to 86,000 liters of clean drinking water from 92 cubic meters of sewer sludge per day. The drinking water meets both United States FDA and World Health Organization standards.

The machine heats the sludge until it boils, water exits the dryer as steam. At this temperature, pathogens cannot survive. While the water is in the vapor phase, it is filtered to remove particles. Then this bio-safe steam is condensed into water before putting it through water treatment.

The machine’s water treatment adjusts the pH, and uses multiple filters to ensure safe, clear, great tasting water. The water is indistinguishable from bottled water.
