The Up-Welling solution in a few words:
Our main focus is :
Economic development for underdeveloped countries
Treating polluted surface water
Containerized water treatment facilities
The founding team
The founding members Armand Wan-Hoi, Pierre Bignon and Anton BOUWER whom all are passionate about innovation had only one objective, bringing this idea to life.
This project after all answers one of the biggest problems in the world: giving people access to safe drinking water where mainly only polluted surface water is available.
Our first step was to create the first prototype of the electricity-free pump. This was quite the task since no gravity-defying autonomous water elevating device has ever existed before
with the exception of the ram pump by the Montgolfier brothers!
However, our patented pumping solution outperforms that of our esteemed collegues.
In 2019 we have had successful trials for wastewater treatment with “La Créole”, a local water treatment and distribution agency on Reunion Island
Today in 2020, we are meeting with Leaders and NGOs for the Indian ocean and east Africa who are confronted with daily problems of water-based illness.
Our role: Accompany and implant our technology to permit the distribution of clean drinking water for the people.
Presenting the solution
An automated system ensures the alternative flow of the water from the water head onto the main driving piston. This then in turn applies a mechanical force on the pressure multiplier pumping pistons.
This multiplied pressure generated by the sole use of water, is then directed towards an ultra or nano membrane filter station
The primary water is completely safe for drinking without the added cost of electricity for the end-user.
In this day and age where climate change causes more and more droughts, which in turn causes population migration and political unrest, the timing for our technology can not be better.
There are surely hundreds of thousands of villages and towns all over the world that may benefit from the Up-Welling technology.
