Access to clean water is still limited for a large number of people across the world. Startups like Emirate-based Manhat are working to change this. Launched in 2019, Manhat uses its proprietary natural water distillation technology to speed up and capture the evaporation of ocean water on the surface. The water could then be used for several purposes including Manhat’s pilot project: floating farms, using the freshwater collected to irrigate and grow crops right at the source.
Manhat was among the winners of the “Water Europe Innovation Awards 2022” and in light of this week’s World Water Week, we had a chat with the founder, Dr. Saeed Alhassan Alkhazraji.
