Watalys, safe water anywhere !
WATALYS® from BULANE, a Swiss company is a small portable device which, by electrolysing salt water, enables the production of a chlorinebased disinfectant solution (sodium hypochlorite), which conforms to WHO standards. WATALYS® reduces the costs of disinfection by a factor of ten, and at the same time, frees populations of the need to purchase and store chlorine, by producing it in situ and on demand. In Madagascar, UNICEF has entered into a partnership with local organizations, for the delivery of its Water & Sanitation programme. An independent study has conclusively demonstrated that the Watalys appliance can over the course of its lifecycle help tourist lodges, hotels, campsites, etc. reduce their carbon footprints by as much as 200 tonnes.
