The International Energy Agency (AIE) forecasts that by 2040, world demand for energy will increase by a third. This will make energy issues worse and will push for further sustainable management of energy resources.
Crystal Lagoons, whose products have been regarded as the World’s Top Amenity in fields such as tourism and real estate, has developed a disruptive technology that has been certified as one of the world’s most sustainable in terms of energy consumption, according to world-leading consultancy firm, Burau Veritas, which verified that Crystal Lagoons’ technology only consumes 2% of the energy required by traditional filtration systems.
Some graphic examples that explain Crystal Lagoons’ energy savings show the energy saved in just one hectare of the company’s crystal clear lagoons, versus the energy consumption of iconic monuments around the world; such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris; Miami’s International Airport in the U.S.,; Colpatria Tower in Bogotá, Colombia and,; The Victoria and Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town, South Africa.
In Paris, the 20,000 light bulbs that light up the Eiffel Tower could stay on during 4 years powered by the energy saved in just one hectare of a crystal clear lagoon. Meanwhile in Thailand, the high-end shopping mall, Siam Paragon, could save 24.88% of its electricity consumption with the energy saved by the crystal clear lagoon at the Sharm el Sheikh project in Egypt.
But low energy consumption is just one of the environmentally friendly characteristics of Crystal Lagoons’ technology, since its pulse-based disinfection system uses up to 100 times less chemical products than what’s being used in traditional swimming pools.
Furthermore, Crystal Lagoons represents very low water consumption, given that its technology needs just half the water required by a park of the same size, and up to one third of a golf course. What’s even better, these crystal clear lagoons can use any type of water; fresh, salt and brackish. These astonishing numbers are further lowered with the company’s latest film-based evaporation-control technology, which manages to avoid water loss due to evaporation in up to 70%.
One of the company’s most challenging goals is to humanize cities and to make urban life more inclusive by creating crystal clear lagoons for public spaces, thus bringing the idyllic beach-like lifestyle to cities far away from the coast, ultimately transforming urban landscapes. This is something that would drastically improve people’s life, setting a scenario never imagined that would allow them to practice water sports at just a few steps from home.
Public crystal clear lagoons will encourage people to visit parks, by improving their aesthetics features, in different parts of the city, from middle to low income areas, where access to this kind of amenity is generally out of reach.
Crystal Lagoons has developed and patent-protected a wide variety of technologies – it boasts over 1,500 patents in 190 countries – that are dramatically changing people’s lifestyles worldwide. Currently, Crystal Lagoons has focused efforts on solving some of humankind’s greatest challenges, such as water and energy scarcity, coming up with innovations such as a desalination technology that does not required energy, which will help face the drinking water scarcity, one of the world’s greatest problems.
