Water is the elixir of life, no life form can sustain without it. While lack of water to meet daily needs is a reality today for one in three people across the globe, around 1 billion people do not have safe access to clean drinking water.sssnew HYDRA, solar powered portable water purification unit provides clean drinking water

In a world where every 8 seconds a child dies due to water borne diseases and lack of potable water, HYDRA could change the very game. Developed by an organization called Essential Element, HYDRA is a mobile water purification system equipped with solar panels. The panels harness solar energy, which helps purify water using solar-powered electrolysis while storing excess energy to power electrical devices directly through the unit. Self- powered as it is the HYDRA also helps forego the logistical challenge involved in fueling or making work remote equipment. The Essential Elements has specifically devised HYDRA for usage in areas that face critical emergencies due to natural or manmade disasters and provide clean safe drinking water to remote areas that face water shortage.
