    UN Sustainable Development Goals Goal 6: Ensure access to water and sanitation for allTarget: By 2030, achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all

    COMMUNITY DRINKING WATER STATIONS - Highlights

    Produces pure drinking water from polluted (well, river, lake, bore-hole), saline, and brackish sources

    Canadian product design - custom built with Canadian and U.S. patented technology - highly efficient components, high-quality, long-life operation

    System is portable - easily transportable to alternate locations

    Ultimate quality and proven technology, produced according to ISO standards

    Product water exceeds WHO drinking water standards

    No chemicals utilized throughout entire freshwater process

    Cost efficient – low capital cost, low maintenance cost, and low per liter cost (approx. USD$0.49 per 1,000 liters)

    Ease of installation and operation via turnkey solution

    No external power required – system powered by photovoltaic solar panels and batteries

    Economic impact - local workforce for installation, operation, and maintenance

    Modular and scalable system allows for water production increase

    A decentralized solution that is truly a self-sustainable source of pure, clean water

    AQUAtapTM Water Purification & Distribution System

    Quest’s AQUAtapTM Water Purification & Distribution System is a self-contained, decentralized, solar-powered water purification and distribution system. The Water Stations are a cost-effective, sustainable, and environmentally sound turnkey solution that supply pure, potable water to communities and locations that do not currently have a source of reliable, clean water. Each unit is fully autonomous, powered by state-of-the-art photovoltaic panels.

    The energy-efficient AQUAtapTM is available in several configurations, depending on the water source and preferred vending method. The AQUAtapTM Water Purification & Distribution Systems convert contaminated ground water, brackish, or sea water into purified drinking water at a rate of up to 80,000 liters per day. The systems are both modular and scalable in design, easily allowing for increased water production, and are designed to function in any environment and without any existing

    infrastructure. Housed in a modular enclosure, a single solar-powered AQUAtapTM system will produce clean water for up to 4,000 people per day from a variety of water sources.

    General DescriptionThe source water is pumped from a contaminated freshwater, brackish, or saline source through a staged filtering sequence starting with heavy sediment and filtering down to the sub-micron level. The source water first passes through an automatic flushing sand separator to remove large particles. The water is then fed through twin backwashing media filters to remove additional heavy sediment down to 10 - 20 micron range. There are then three parallel trains of bag filters at 10 micron, 5 micron, and 1 micron as pre-filters. Filter polishing is with either a triple parallel self-cleaning ultrafilter with a filtration level of 0.01 micron (in the event of contaminated freshwater) or a Reverse Osmosis membrane (in the event the source water contains salinity levels >15,000 parts per million). The purified water is then pumped through an Ultravioletsterilization unit prior to being pumped into one of two, 2,000 liter holding tanks, thenthrough a second Ultraviolet sterilization unit prior to being dispensed by the end user.The pumps and compressors are powered by a series of batteries that are chargedthrough an array of photovoltaic panels.

    The components are manufactured in the United States and Canada at ISO certified factories. Essential features of the equipment include; independence and mobility, extremely fast installation, very low energy consumption, no ongoing fuel costs, minimal maintenance requirements, and product water that exceeds WHO standards.

  • DRINKING WATER COSTS – COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS (Average Emerging Market Prices)

    Per Litre Per 50 Litres Per 1,000 Litres

    AQUAtapTM $0.00049 $0.024 $0.49

    Trucked Municipal Water $0.02 - $0.05 $1.00 - $2.50 $20.00 - $50.00

    Domestic Bottled Water $1.50 $75.00 $1,500.00

    Imported Bottled Water $3.20 $160.00 $3,200.00

    The chart clearly shows the vast difference in cost between these three current methods and water derived from Quest Water’s AQUAtap Water Purification & Distribution System.

    COMPARATIVE ANALYSISUsing the average emerging market water prices as an example, and where the Company has performed extensive due diligence and accurately assessed drinking water availability, the table below outlines the cost of the three current methods of water accessibility to marginalized citizens: river water delivered by truck to public cisterns, domestic bottled water, and imported bottle water.
