Kuwaiti inventor wins 1st place in GCC award on water distillation project

KUWAIT: Kuwaiti engineer Adel Al-Wasis won the first place in the GCC Patent Office award for the best water distillation project, held recently at the GCC pavilion in Dubai Expo 2020. In a press statement on Thursday, Wasis said he was one of five inventors who qualified to the finals for his invention on “watering with cold steam”.

He added that his project focuses on purifying salty water by using an air-free tank to reduce water boiling temperature, and using solar power to increase water heat. The engineer noted that he had worked on many water-related projects in over ten years, aiming to resolve the lack of drinkable water in the Gulf region. Wasis had won several international gold medals for his invention “the safety belt” in 2013 in Kuwait, 2017 in Malaysia and 2021 in Qatar. – KUNA
