A Canadian startup called Oneka Technologies has developed a new desalination system that is autonomous and completely off-shore. It uses waves to pump water through filters and reverse osmosis membranes. The company also offers a wave-powered desalination system. Oneka’s solution is a complete off-shore solution for the world’s water shortage. While the company is yet to announce a specific pricing or availability, it is promising to make an impact on the water industry.
Innovative startups are taking on the global water crisis head-on. Oneka is dedicated to using the ocean as a sustainable drinking water resource. The company is headquartered in Canada, but has a test site in Florida. The company also works with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals to fight poverty, protect the environment, and ensure peace and prosperity for all. Solar Impulse, for example, aims to bridge the gap between the economy and the ecology and to show that clean energy solutions don’t need to be expensive.
