Team Chorismós

Presentation of the participants of the TUM DeSal Challenge 2016

Team leader:
Desalination technology: Electrodialysis powered by photovoltaics
Veronica Della Mura and Johannes Bundschuh are attending the secondary school “Thomas-Mann-Gymnasium” in Munich, Germany. Florian Kretzler is their biology and chemistry teacher. Johannes Bundschuh took part in the 2016 pupils’ and students science fair “Jugend forscht” with a presentation of his empirical data about the “effects of direct-current on salt water”.

The two pupils are designing a small scale electrodialysis device based on Johannes’ results. The completely energy self-sufficient outdoor gear is either powered by a foldable 50 W solar panel or a hand-operated dynamo.

Energy self-sufficient, low cost and lightweight, with a capacity of a minimum of 6 l a day, the Chorismós desalination device is the ideal equipment wherever drinking water is needed.
