NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - March 06, 2014) - Aquavolve's Founder & CEO, Dan Konstanty, along with Vice President of International Relations, Chris Mancini, recently researched and arranged for Aquavolve to attend the President of the General Assembly's Thematic Debate on Water, Sanitation, and Renewable Energy in the Post 2015 Development Agenda held in the Trusteeship Council Chamber at The United Nations on February 18th and 19th in New York City.
Following the same general structure used to create the Millennium Development Goals, member nations from around the world gathered to address how the U.N. should structure policy and the global goals being set for the post 2015 world. Dan Konstanty attended the two day event in the Trusteeship Council Chamber at the U.N. as well as UN-Water's breakout session in the Dag Hammarskjold Auditorium. The Aquavolve President commented to the assembly on private sector activities regarding recognition of the water demands of the rising billion in the developing world.
In addition to explaining how operations in the private sector would react to the goals, Mr. Konstanty also refreshed the theme of Humanities Reporter Ed Qorro's Special Report published in the Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania Citizen Reporter Newspaper in June of last year. The article outlined how international aid groups provided over $50MM in funding to Tanzania to help end water borne illness there. At the time of the report, there was still over $36MM left in the fund, and the recipients were stating that they had no idea how to spend what was left to improve the problem. Dan's comments facilitated immediate conversations with Uganda, Kenya, Senegal, Jamaica, UNICEF, UN - Water, and the staff of the President of the General Assembly, John Ashe.
Related discussions in the chamber centered on the nexus of water and energy. Questions about renewable energy policy by Aquavolve, via a live streaming Twitter question and answer session to the General Assembly, were addressed on the floor. The Water Making Systems company asked if the U.N. would support subsidies to promote net-metering development as this would spur solar farm creation as profit centers.
Aquavolve, LLC is the Boston based global sales, distribution, and maintenance partner to Eole Water of St. Tulle, France, founded by CEO Marc Parent. The Eole Water Making System cools the humidity in the air to the dew point, triple-micron filters the water, and then adds mineral content for taste and nutrition. The unit pictured here is the Nerios which makes over 26 gallons of WHO standard fresh water per day when plugged into an electrical power source, or it can make 13 gallons per day when 100% powered by a solar panel array.
