'Team points' are awarded according to the adequacy of the solution with the type of innovations sought by Team for the Planet. They correspond to the analysis of several factors :

  • impact potential: impact average score > 4 => 0,5 point / if > 4,15 => 1 point.
  • global consistency: all average score of the 6 selection criteria > 2,5 => 1 point.
  • the favourite: % of assessments judge the innovation as a top one to act on a global scale against greenhouse gases > 20% => 1 point
  • the targeting: validation of Team for the Planet scope of action higher than 90% => 0,5 point + innovation level of maturity is enough => 0,5 point
  • social acceptability: semantic analysis score of comments > 0 => 0,5 point/ if > 3500 => 1 point

Detailed project

NB: this form is filled entirely by the ones submitting the innovation.

What is the issue addressed?

The current desalination solutions use a lot of fossil fuels and harmful chemicals that pollute our oceans.

How is the problem solved?

Desolenator harnesses only the power of the sun, with zero harmful chemicals, membranes and brine, to turn seawater or contaminated water into ultrapure or custom remineralized water.

What is the customer target?

Corporates part of the CEO Water Mandate in collaboration with governments.

How is this solution different?

Desolenator wastes less water, uses no membranes, provides a lower levelized cost of water and allows for different sources of water input.
