Mechanistic modeling of UV and mild-heat synergistic effect on solarwater disinfection

A mechanistic model of inactivation of Escherichia coli by the action of solar UV radiation and simultaneous solar mild-heat occurring during solar water disinfection (SODIS)

Intracellular mechanism of solar water disinfection

This work reports on the experimental measurement of accumulated intracellular ROS in E. coli during solar irradiation

Solar disinfection of drinking water and diarrhoea in Maasai children: a controlled field trial

Solar disinfection of drinking water and diarrhoea in Maasai children: a controlled field trial

Dr. Lyndon Buck was conducting a scoping exercise to determine if local pottery/ceramic groups and plastics manufacturers might be able to produce the Solar Ceramic prototypes in Malawi. Solar radiation reduces the bacterial contentof water, and may therefore offer a method for disinfection of drinking water that requires few resources and no expertise.

Solar disinfection of drinking water protects against cholera in children under 6 years of age

Solar disinfection of drinking water protects against cholera in children under 6 years of age

Solar disinfection of drinking water protects against cholera in children under 6 years of age. R M Conroy,M E Meegan, T Joyce, K McGuigan, J Barnes. Background and Aims—We have previously reported a reduction in risk of diarrhoeal disease in children who used solar disinfected drinking water.

Randomized Intervention Study of Solar Disinfection of Drinking Water in the Prevention of Dysentery in Kenyan Children Aged under 5 Years

Randomized Intervention Study of Solar Disinfection of Drinking Water in the Prevention of Dysentery in Kenyan Children Aged under 5 Years

We report the results of a randomized controlled intervention study (September 2007 to March 2009) investigating the effect of solar disinfection (SODIS) of drinking water on the incidence of dysentery, nondysentery diarrhea, and anthropometric measurements of height and weight among children of age 6 months to 5 years living in peri-urban and rural communities in Nakuru, Kenya.

High Compliance Randomized Controlled Field Trial of Solar Disinfection of Drinking Water and Its Impact on Childhood Diarrhea in Rural Cambodia

High Compliance Randomized Controlled Field Trial of Solar Disinfection of Drinking Water and Its Impact on Childhood Diarrhea in Rural Cambodia

Recent solar disinfection (SODIS) studies in Bolivia and South Africa have reported compliance rates below 35% resulting in no overall statistically significant benefit associated with disease rates.

Solar water disinfection (SODIS): A review from benchtop to rooftop

Solar water disinfection (SODIS): A review from benchtop to rooftop

Solar water disinfection (SODIS) has been known for more than 30 years. The technique consists of placing water into transparent plastic or glass containers (normally 2 L PET beverage bottles) which are then exposed to the sun.

Field comparison of solar water disinfection (SODIS) efficacy between glass and polyethylene terephalate (PET) plastic bottles under sub-Saharan weather conditions

Field comparison of solar water disinfection (SODIS) efficacy between glass and polyethylene terephalate (PET) plastic bottles under sub-Saharan weather conditions

Concerns about photodegradation products leaching from plastic bottle material into water during solar water disinfection (SODIS) are a major psychological barrier to increased uptake of SODIS.

Evaluation of solar disinfection of E. coli under Sub-Saharan field  conditions using a 25L borosilicate glass batch reactor fitted with a compound parabolic collector

Evaluation of solar disinfection of E. coli under Sub-Saharan field conditions using a 25L borosilicate glass batch reactor fitted with a compound parabolic collector

The bacterial inactivation efficacy of a solar water disinfection (SODIS) reactor consisting of a 25 L borosilicate glass tube fitted with a compound parabolic collector (BGTR-CPC) was assessed under equatorial weather conditions in Uganda.
