Project Summary
Elevator Pitch

Concise Summary: Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

ICES is a social and Profit enterprise for sustainable Renewable energy using Solar system to treatment the waste water . We use solar cell to extraction of groundwater from the wells in New places reclaimed , also provide training for fresh graduate who will work in solar energy project .

WHAT IF - Inspiration: Write one sentence that describes a way that your project dares to ask, "WHAT IF?"

What if Necessary amount from drinking water, agriculture less than the amount of available water ?
About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

Main problem will face all over the world the amount of Clean water are available for drinking and agriculture specially, Water Resource are limited within 10 years we will find water war. Second waste water treatment are use large amount of electric power, and are need Design of special specifications concrete installations . Third one The high cost of traditional methods of treatment facilities. last one quality of water generated .

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

We have Two Solution to Clean water :- 1- We use the renewable energy ( solar concentration ) to treatment waste water( sanitation ) 2- Use solar Pump machine to extraction of groundwater from the wells in New places reclaimed . 3- solar system concentration , doesn't need a lot of Concrete building . 4- cost of one litter are produced is cheap compare another method . 5- Quality of water produced from the new solution ( solar system concentration ) Much better than the three treatment systems ( Biological treatment systems ) . 6- The resulting water can be used in agriculture and drinking . The Idea are presented wastewater treatment ,are Unique in local context in Egypt middle east and Africa .


Get first place in the ambitious ideas of the Ministry of Youth contest ( Honored not Awards ) , also get training In Nile University for Entrepreneur
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

1)Average Affect per Person of pure water produced Poor and developing countries For 1 Years 116.3 Meter Cube, with decrease with 11.3 % percentage from 2012/2013 . 2)Energy are used in waste water( sanitation ) treatment . 3)Water produced are use for agriculture and drinking , Traditional technology ( Biological treatment systems ) can't use in drinking . 4)project are divide into three sector . A .Implementation&Consulting Team :- Design and Implement new project (wastewater treatment using solar System – Solar Pump machine project for extraction of Underground water. B . Training Team:- Providing training engineers and technicians for Fresh graduates. C . R&D Team ( this team are focus in water treatment using solar system ).

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.

Our Company start with three Sectors [ ( Implementation and Consulting Team ) - ( Research and Development Team ) - ( Training For Fresh graduate )] . A - Implementation and Consulting Team:- 1) Implement Project to Provide Electricity for Uncovered area for agriculture purpose (Reclamation of new land space) 2) Implement Project to Provide Electricity for Industrial enterprises ,who want Reduce the electrical energy consumed from national Power Network. B- Research and Development team :- 1) Research Team , who are responsible to develop new project like presented "Water Treatment using Solar System " . C- Training Division Team :- 1) We provide training for Fresh graduate from agriculture Collage , to use this "Solar Pump Machine technology" in New Reclamation area . The Idea are presented wastewater treatment ,are Unique in local context in Egypt middle east a

Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?

1 ) we will use Free workshop and Training for Fresh graduate to Spreed the Green Energy Concept between Farmers. 2) we use social media to Spreed Waste Water treatment Technology . - Funding , we still search for funding Organization . - Solar systems (solar pump project to extract the under ground water - Solar Panel provide electricity for Industrial enterprises ) already work and we receive request for installation project , But for Waste water project we are need Fund to continue the research and start apply the Pilot project .

Financial Sustainability Plan: What is this solution’s plan to ensure financial sustainability?

To achieve financial sustainability we have to diversify the sources of income of more than one item :- 1) Use solar system to Provide electricity ( for extract water from underground for Uncovered area for agriculture purpose (Reclamation of new land space) 2)Use solar system to Provide Electricity for Industrial enterprises . 3) We will provide advanced Course in solar System for specialized Engineer and technician.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

1 ) According European commission the Solar radiation in upper Egypt ( Assuit - sohag - Qena - Aswan ) are Consider the Best Place in the World for Solar system . we have continuous radiation for 8 -9 Hours Per day with average 1500 wh/m2 as i attache 2 ) Project are Scalab to apply in Another Country in Africa with some Technical Modification ( According Solar radiation degree - heat )

Founding Story

Main Idea are start gradually , we divide the project to steps to main projects Waste water Treatment . Our project waste water treatment ( sanitation ) . in Egypt we have maxim "Necessity is the mother of invention" , mean you need to have problem ( motivation ) to start to solve it ( solution ) through steps . Every Country have several problem Food , water , Population growth, fuel and Electricity . - The beginning of the problem in Egypt, power cuts . The beginning of the problem in Egypt, electricity outages frequently great time for periods ranging for one hour minimum, followed all stop for all services of drinking water.

Leadership and the Unilever Awards
Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.

in Egypt the Land cultivated area is very small compared to the total space available , Main Obstacle is water . We Overcome this problem by solar Pump machine to Extract
water from underground for Agriculture Purpose.
This are increase agricultural area , and Decease Food price .

Beyond your existing team, who else are you working with to achieve your objectives, eg partners, advisors, mentors?

Yes , we have 4 employee work as part time as Engineer , Trainers and technician .We cooperate with Local NGO like misr el_kheir ( to Maintain Free workshop and Training for Fresh graduate .
