Solvatten water container provides safe water by using UV-A and UV-B sterilization. One of great challenges in developing countries is to provide safe water to its people, these are countries where most hospital beds are occupied by people suffering from illness due to contaminated water. There are many people die as the result of polluted water, Petra Wadström tries to prevent this by designing a water container that transforms dirty water into drinking water.

Water usage is interlinked with energy, typical African home uses around 70% of the energy for cooking, heating, washing, and boiling water. Unfortunately, due to the lack of infrastructure and electricity, they usually take advantage of charcoal/wood burning which leads to harmful indoor pollution, deforestation, risk for burn injuries, and carbon dioxide emissions. Solvatten has been designed to use in these situations where water resources are scarce and prone to contamination.
