WorldWater & Solar Technologies Corp. will soon be shipping 12 of its Mobile MaxPure solar-powered water purification systems to the US military, which will use them to bring clean fresh water to farmers and families in the Euphrates Valley region of Iraq. The portable systems have the ability to supply 30,000 gallons per day of clean fresh water for drinking or irrigation – and 3.2 kilowatts of electrical power.

The Mobile MaxPure™ is a stand-alone, sturdy and robust 7-foot cube that opens with the press of a button, unfolding a solar array which can deliver 3.2 kilowatts of electrical power and, with the Company’s patented AquaMax™ controls, can pump and purify up to 30,000 gallons of water daily. The unit can also desalinate brackish or sea water. It will operate from sunshine alone or in combination with a power grid. Mobile MaxPure™ is also equipped with a back-up generator and a battery bank for 24-hour use.

The Morrell Foundation of Bluffdale, Utah, is paying $900,000 for the dozen units, which are being delivered to Iraq by Millennium KI, a military supply contractor.

“The Iraqi farmers do not have reliable power from the electric grid to operate their irrigation pumps or treat their water for drinking,” said Quentin T. Kelly, Chairman & CEO of WorldWater & Solar Technologies Corp., in a press release. “When we received an e-mail from the Marines at Camp Fallujah requesting water purification units, we moved immediately. Morrell and Millennium responded equally. I understand families are drinking directly from the river, which of course is seriously polluted. Within 30 minutes of Max’s arrival on site, the people will be able to drink purified water from the river and able to start irrigating crops.”

WorldWater is a publicly-held company. Its shares are traded on the NASDAQ Bulletin Board under the symbol WWAT.OB. It is a fully reporting company. WorldWater & Solar Technologies Corp. was formed in 1997 as the result of a reverse merger.

Its stock is currently inexpensive.

WorldWater isn’t on the cutting edge of innovating new energy technologies – instead it is in the business of innovating ways to use solar power – in this case, to create fresh water in a remote location that’s off both the electric grid and the public water infrastructure. The Mobile MaxPure™ is, I think, a good example of the kinds of alt-energy applications we’re going to increasingly see: relatively small, decentralized and independent of the grid.
