SwissINSO moves to Lausanne science hub

SwissINSO Holding Inc, a company dealing in the application of solar-power to water purification/desalination and heating/cooling of buildings, is moving to Switzerland’s prestigious Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) Science Park, the Swiss Silicon Valley.

The company says that the move reflects the success of the company’s significant product developments and rapid business growth.

“This move was a natural outgrowth of the partnership we developed with LESO, the solar applied research laboratory of EPFL”, said Dr Yves Ducommun, CEO of SwissINSO and a PhD from EPFL. “SwissINSO is proud to have financed two new positions at LESO, a post-doctoral scientist and a doctorate student, as part of its commitment to practical applications of advanced solar energy technology.”

SwissINSO currently has two core businesses, one of which is Krystall™ (see D&WR May/June 2010, p44), a 100% solar- powered turnkey water purification system enclosed within standard 20 ft (6.1m) or 40 ft (12.2m) containers. Easily transportable, Krystall uses patented reverse-osmosis technology to purify 100 m³/d of contaminated water or to desalinate 50 m³/d of seawater per day into high-quality water for drinking or agriculture, with low operating and maintenance costs.
