Everything starts with clean water
Solvatten is a social enterprise based in Sweden, and we have one mission: To provide people living in developing countries with safe and hot water in a portable, environmentally-friendly way.
We created a revolutionary way to provide clean water to under-served communities worldwide and are pinpoint-focused on delivering the Solvatten Solar Safe Water System to customers, charities, and distributors around the world. We have formed partnerships with like-minded organizations and micro-financing institutions in efforts to increase reach and improve affordability.
Solvatten is the brainchild of a Swedish inventor, Petra Wadström, and the Solvatten story began in Australia in the early 90s, where Petra was living with her husband Carl and their family. Wadström’s professional background was diverse, spanning both medical science and the arts, which helped spark the creative thinking behind Solvatten.
