Access to safe water is a global issue. Today, at least 2 billion people use a drinking water source contaminated with fecal matter. And it has been estimated that by 2025, nearly half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas. Contaminated water can transmit diseases such as diarrhea, cholera, dysentery, and typhoid, among others. Safe and readily available water is important for public health, whether it is used for drinking or personal use.

Of diarrhea-associated deaths could be prevented by access to safe water
By 2050, more than half of the world's population will live in water-stressed regions. Each day, nearly 1000 children die due to preventable water and sanitation-related diarrhoeal diseases. In India's underserved rural areas, for example, with its 650,000 villages, 85% of the water is drawn using borewells (pipe and typically hand pump) that tap into groundwater or aquifers, which are widely contaminated with disease-causing germs and pollutants.
The Taraltec:Maji™ Reactor device from Taraltec Solutions applies a breakthrough technology to disinfect water by destroying the microbes in it. The Taraltec:Maji™ Reactor harnesses the principles of physics, specifically fluid dynamics, to destroy microbes in the water, thereby eliminating water-borne diseases and rendering the water safe for drinking, food preparation, etc. The Taraltec:Maji™ Reactor can be easily retrofitted onto a hand pump – such as the India Mark 2 model, within an hour by a fitter with no special training or tools. The Taraltec:Maji Reactor is scalable and can be taken across geographies to millions more at a cost that is decimals of a cent/paisa per liter of water.
Taraltec® Solutions has already worked with Village Panchayats (local government), numerous CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) partners, and individual sponsors in hundreds of villages in India, to install its Taraltec:Maji™ Reactors onto borewell handpumps. Organizations, sponsors, and buyers are encouraged to contact us to discuss partnerships and purchase options.
