Salt as the method, drinking water as the goal.

More than 2 billion people still live without access to drinking water and hundreds of thousands of people die every year due to a lack of safe and clean water. Brineys solves this problem with your help and local partners.

Starting with a start-up project for Kenya. How? By separating seawater into clean drinking water and salt. The drinking water is used to reduce the water shortage in Kenya. You can buy the salt as sea salt. In this way you contribute to solving the water shortage. The first bamboo salt cellars have now been produced by Brineys and filled with salt from our partner and available in our webshop. Can we count on you?

Our vision

There will come a day when no one has to worry about drinking water anymore.

Brineys is committed to ensuring that everyone has physical and economic access to a reliable and healthy drinking water source. This so that people are able to lead a healthy, happy and independent life.

Our mission

Changing the way water scarcity is solved.

Brineys does it differently. In addition to producing drinking water, we also make use of the salt present in seawater. The water is distributed to people who need it. The salt is sold as fair-trade sea salt of high quality. The proceeds from selling sea salt are fully used to produce drinking water. With this business model, Brineys can reduce water scarcity and stimulate the local economy, without depending on donations and funds.

The plan

Techniques for turning seawater into drinking water are not new. Why then is it that there are still more than 2.2 billion people in the world who experience some form of water scarcity? That is the question Brineys has asked himself. According to Brineys, there is no approach in which the demand for water is seen as an economic demand. 35-50% of water projects fail within 2 to 5 years because they do not meet the needs of the user. Without water users, these projects are not economically viable. One of the reasons this happens is that projects are poorly maintained and 99% of projects are not monitored.

Sea salt is shipped to the Netherlands

The proceeds are used to set up and maintain drinking water factories
