Pittsburgh-Based Foundation to Unveil Breakthrough in Low Cost Water Purification Technology at G-20 Summit

A Pittsburgh-based non-profit group called Project Eviive will reveal its plan and technology to alleviate the world’s growing fresh water crisis at the G-20 Summit, to be held Sept. 24-25, in Pittsburgh.

According to reports by the World Health Organization, water scarcity affects one in three people on every continent of the globe and the situation is getting worse as needs for water rise along with population growth and urbanization. Half of all the hospital beds in the world are occupied by people sick from waterborne illness.

Project Eviive’s mission is made possible through the use of a water purification technology developed by Epiphany Solar Water Systems, another Pittsburgh-based company.

Epiphany’s groundbreaking technology utilizes solar energy to distill unclean water in a way that is simple, inexpensive, and sustainable. Tom Joseph, Epiphany's founder and President, has spent more than four years perfecting the technology, with the intention of providing potable water to the poor and underserved around the globe by using natural resources combined with innovative equipment at little or no cost to the end user communities.

As Pittsburgh prepares to welcome the leaders of the world, Project Eviive is preparing to unveil what it believes may be the global clean water solution for which many have been searching.
