Sustainability issue: Waste & Energy
An average ten-minute in a conventional shower uses 20 gallons or 75 liters of water. Conventional showers are not designed to recycle and reuse water when in use. Yet, water is a finite resource; one that needs to be safeguarded. The equal distribution and provision of water in cities is an increasing concern for cities around the world. Using copious amounts of water in showers is especially problematic in water-scarce areas. Those who can afford to use a large percentage of the available water resources do so at the expense of those who cannot meet basic needs. Furthermore, showers require substantial energy – another issue facing growing cities.
- Orbital Systems is a solution to the conventional shower problem highlighted above.
- The technology is a closed loop shower that deliver up to 90% water and energy savings. The system releases approximately 5 liters of fresh water when the shower tap is turned on. This water is then recycled and reuse throughout the duration of the entire shower. According to the company this enables a guilt-free shower for as long as the person desires. Two minutes after the tap is turned off, the water used is released from the system. The following time the tap is turned on, a new 5 liters of fresh water will enter the system.
- The technology also includes purification capsules which enable a filtration system. Therefore, as the OrbSy recycles the water, it filters contaminants in the water thereby increasing the quality and cleanliness.
- The technology includes an integrated electric water heater.
