Taking advantage of rain as a natural resource, the roof of the Mazda Kiyora channels rainwater firstly through an activated carbon filter and then into a specially commissioned drinks bottle designed for Mazda by LIFESAVER systems.
The LIFESAVER bottle citi is located between the front seats for easy access, and uses state of the art ultra filtration hollow fibre membranes. With a pore size of 15 nano-meters these membranes remove all microbiological contamination including bacteria and viruses without using chemicals, delivering safe fresh drinking water to the driver and passengers any time. The bottle is removable so can be taken out of the car and used to gather water from other natural sources such as rivers, lakes and streams.
Michael Pritchard, Inventor – CEO of LIFESAVER systems said “It makes me very proud to be working with Mazda on such a thrilling environmentally sound project. Bottled water is just wrong when we have such plentiful supplies of nature’s resource all around us.” “I look forward to the LIFESAVER bottle citi going into production and preventing millions of tonnes of plastic water bottles being dumped each year into landfill.”
