The desert treasures

From wastewater to sustainable manner

Desalinate used water of thermal bath using renewable energy to irrigate forage crops which are essential for animal production systems

Use Case

Installation of convenient tools to recover used waters and specifically thermal bath's used ones.

Potential

Having in mind the fast growing population and therefore the increasing amount of food necessary to support this growth,the need to implement cost effective solutions became imperative.Desalinate used water by using solar energy offers a cheap,sustainable and more accessible way to valuate these waste waters in irrigating crops which reduces the cost of production.

Business Case

The desalinated waters can be used in a variety of places such as irrigating field crops,aquaponics and hydroponics.This idea targets farmers in order to provide them with a more convenient price which eventually lowers the price of the product,making it more accessible.

Objectives:

  1. Value wastewater from thermal bath
  2. Produce an economical and sustainable forage crops as source of nutrients for animal production
  3. Ensure animal production systems and food safety (meat , milk production, aquaponics...)

Tunis, Tunisia

Our Team

Our Mission

the desert treasures is the project of the tunisian team that will participate in the Thought for food challenge of 2017 . Our idea is very simple and the cost is not expensive. It could be used to solve the problem of water shortage and can serve to feed 9 billion people. Our idea is that we will use solar energy in the treatment and desalination of waste water from public baths and use the water in the irrigation of forage and hydroponic crops.

Our Background

we are participating in this challenge because we are convinced that any problem have a solution if we work together. If the entire world fought for this convictions there would be no famine. We want • to improve our conviction in this common problem. • to share and exchange knowledge with the world. • to create a better future. • to exploit the natural resources that exist in Tunisia and several other Mediterranean countries. • to get healthy, affordable, and sustainable food for all
