Crystal Lagoons embraces National Science Week – 15 – 20 August

August 18, 2017 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

As award-winning business Crystal Lagoons keeps pushing the boundaries of science and technology, it is excited to embrace Australian National Science Week, 12 – 20 August 2017.

Through its numerous wins of environmental and sustainability awards, Crystal Lagoons is the classic example of a successful business of the future.

Crystal Lagoons’ impressive turquoise waters are revolutionizing the way tens of thousands of people live, as well as revolutionizing water and energy production. Applications range from bringing idyllic beach life to locations otherwise thought unimaginable, to providing industrial solutions for closed-circuit cooling systems for thermal power plants and data-centers, among others.

For his work developing industrial applications solving worldwide problems such as energy and water scarcity, Crystal Lagoons’ founder Fernando Fischmann, was recently named ‘Innovator of the Year’ and the patented Crystal Lagoons desalination technology was awarded the ‘Energy Industry Innovator of the Year’. Fischmann was one of the 5 finalists for this year’s Real Innovation Award, organised by the London Business School and is a nominee for the European Patent Office’s ‘Inventor of the Year’ award.

Mr Germàn Rocca, Oceania Director for Crystal Lagoons comments on National Science Week: “The team at Crystal Lagoons acknowledges the contributions of Australian scientists to the world of knowledge. As a business, we aim to encourage an interest in science pursuits, and to encourage younger people to become fascinated by daily utilization of modern technology.”

Mr Rocca represents the multi-national company that has developed an innovative concept and technology, patented in 190 countries, that allows for the cost-effective construction and maintenance of unlimited size bodies of water, in crystal-clear conditions.

Mr Rocca adds: “Around one-third of Crystal Lagoons profits are re-invested in research and development and with each new residential and tourist project the company pushes the boundaries of science and technology to achieve improved environmental outcomes and bring clean water to the world.

Crystal Lagoons’ pioneering technology has enabled it to expand exponentially around the globe, offering an amenity that uses half the water required by a park of the same size and up to 30 times less water than required by a golf course. The lagoons can be built even when clean water is unavailable with the technology able to utilise even salt or brackish water.

Other breakthrough concepts, developed and patented by Crystal Lagoons’ scientists include:

Public Lagoons

Crystal Lagoons, together with students of the Sloan School of Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), worked on a business model to massify crystal clear lagoons in a large format for public use.

These public lagoons make the most of underused green areas, through gigantic bodies of water. The idea is to improve the quality of life in crowded cities, encouraging social inclusion as well as recreational and sporting activities.

In terms of its economic impact, these lagoons are a source of employment, they increase the added value of surrounding areas and generate higher income for municipalities because of land tax and ticket sales.

Desalination Technology

Crystal Lagoons has developed a revolutionary water desalination technology which uses no energy and holds the key to producing potable water. The lives and wellbeing of more than 1 billion people around the globe are threatened by the shortage of drinking water.

The company plans to set up pilot plants in several locations around the world. Feasibility studies have established that if the model were scaled up and implemented in the 17 thermoelectric plants in the north of Chile, the volume of drinking water generated would be similar to the total current consumption, at low cost and without using additional energy.

The technologies have been patented in the United States by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) via the Green Technology fast track, because of their environmental contribution to the planet. Only 1 in every 1,500 patent applications receives that privilege.
