Elemental Water Makers

To move from water scarcity to abundance, Elemental Water Makers enables affordable safe water from the sea & sun by awarded solar-powered desalination technology.
Already 4 billion people face a shortage of water.
Because 97% of our water resources are salty, the key to access to more water lies in the sea. Desalination's nothing new but is expensive, fossil fuel-intensive & complex. EWM developed easy-to-operate technology to make affordable water from sustainable resources.

To solve fresh water scarcity, using only natural resources of the sea and sun.


To solve fresh water scarcity, using only natural resources of the sea and sun.


Elemental Water Makers was founded in April 2012 by Sid Vollebregt and Reinoud Feenstra, two engineers of the University of Technology Delft. The foundation of the company originates from a technological innovation which was designed, implemented and evaluated in the year before by the construction of a successful field pilot in Indonesia. The founders are determined to get their technology successfully into the market as they are convinced of the need for renewable driven desalination. With a strong background in water treatment, sustainable energy technology, mechanical engineering and entrepreneurship and a large network within these topics, all required expertise is within reach.

EWM has reached the scale-up phase of their company, having implemented over 30 projects in 15 countries.


Water and fossil energy costs are rising, while at the same time an increasing water demand by population growth and rising living standards. With phenomena as the salinization of aquifers and climate change effects, the demand for desalination is expected to double the next coming years. Meanwhile, decreasing costs of renewable energy, the vast availability of salt water and increasing environmental awareness make the coupling of renewable energy and desalination the next logical step to solve fresh water scarcity. However, there is one main barrier. Reverse osmosis is designed for continuous operation, while renewables fluctuate over time. Elemental Water Makers has developed a solution which enables a constant reverse osmosis process, while running on fluctuating renewable energy only. Batteries are avoided, as they involve high investment costs versus a short lifetime in warmer climates, together with energy conversion losses and maintenance.


Hotels on water scarce islands
Hotels pay higher water tariffs than domestic users, offering a solid business opportunity. They will also benefit from a green image by avoiding the use of fossil fuels. This is the initial focus market of Elemental Water Makers.

Remote communities in coastal regions
Providing rural communities with a water treatment system for drinking water purposes with a water kiosk business model through NGO’s and government’s forms an interesting future market. The market size consists of the 2.1 billion people without access to safe water, of which 80% lives in rural areas.

Municipalities with high energy costs
Providing large scale systems to municipalities to enable affordable water using an independent method of production through renewable energy is another future ambition.
