Bio-Concrete Water Filtration System

At the 2014 Design Week in Milan, concrete brand IVANKA introduced a revolutionary water filtration project that collects rainwater and turns it into high quality drinking water. Worldwide population growth is increasing the demand for freshwater that can be used as safe drinking water. The development of a process to turn rainwater into drinking water will help to ensure a sufficient freshwater supply to meet the expected increased demand.

IVANKAs water filtration system works because of the innovative material bio-concrete, which is pH neutral and has bio-compatible influences on water. The technology filters raw rainwater without the use of chemicals, producing the highest quality, sun-distilled drinking water. The Budapest-based company constructed a 1:1 scale demonstration model of a “RainHouse” at the Milan Design Week. The model used a fake cloud above the structure to simulate rainwater. The rain would run down the bio-concrete tiles on the rood and into a bio-concrete storage tank. The water is then naturally purified and distributed back through the house to provide healthy drinking water.

While this project is still in its testing and development stages, the potential for such an innovation is enormous. This water filtration system could potentially be a safe drinking water solution for people all over the world. The bio-concrete material can be applied to existing structures as well as new ones.
