LAUSANNE, Switzerland, Aug. 25 /CNW/ - SwissINSO, a major innovator in the application of solar-power to water purification/desalination and heating/cooling of buildings, announces its move to Switzerland's prestigious EPFL Science Park, joining an exclusive club of world-class players.
SwissINSO SA is proud to announce its move to the prestigious R&D Science Park at EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne), the Swiss Silicon Valley. The move to this renowned technology hub reflects the success of the company's significant product developments and rapid business growth.
SwissINSO will work within the scientific community of 300 laboratories, 4000 researchers and 7000 students. This further strengthens the company's commitment to bringing advanced, 100%-green solar technology to the marketplace.
SwissINSO is in good company as it joins the roster of 80+ companies, ranging from start-ups to some of the world's most prominent high-tech names.
A Long-Standing Research Partnership
"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.
We believe that these knowledge-sharing initiatives and technological partnerships will help accelerate the technical and commercial development of new green products for which we have a distinct competitive edge", he added.

SwissINSO currently has two core businesses:
- KRYSTALL (TM) is the world's first 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 100,000 litres of contaminated water or to desalinate 50,000 litres of seawater per day into high-quality water for drinking or agriculture, with low operating and maintenance costs.
Krystall is perfectly suited for servicing remote towns and villages, hotels, humanitarian and relief situations, and turnkey camps.
- KLYMAA (TM) uses state-of-the-art nano-composite solar coating technology, developed exclusively with EPFL, to heat and cool buildings via solar-collector glass facade panels. These colored, glazed thermal "curtain walls" are opaque to the eye but transparent to sunlight, allowing as much transmission of the sun's energy as clear glass. Available in a wide variety of colors and treatments, these solar panels now offer architects and engineers design possibilities previously unthinkable.
