Chilean who built world’s largest swimming pool shares findings in Abu Dhabi20 March, 2014 / News
Fernando Fischmann, founder and CEO of Crystal Lagoons Corp, an energy-efficient artificial lagoon company, presented at the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) about sustainable cooling methods. In a day and age where global warming presents great challenges, Crystal Lagoons plays an important role. Their new type of cooling eliminates a large amount of pollution, striving towards greater energy efficiency.
The technology is not only applicable to the creation of swimming pools, but also power plants and other industrial plants. Crystal Lagoons already has 19 more sustainable projects underway in Peru, the USA, Finland, India, Saudi Arabia, and Chile.
Crystal Lagoons describes itself as “bringing an idyllic beach life to areas previously unimagined and radically enhancing people’s lifestyles.” The company is all about installing pools in coastal areas, city parks, and other inland areas. It has found ways to eliminate marine pollution and coral and marine ecosystem threats created by industries that require cooling, reducing carbon emissions.
Joaquín Konow, the chief of development of Crystal Lagoons, explained at the summit, “There is enormous interest in our company because we offer economically affordable and environmentally friendly cooling methods. Today, we not only have thermoelectric projects, but solar ones as well.”
Of the total energy used by a plant to produce electricity, about 65% is lost in the form of heat. The technology that Crystal Lagoons has created allows the capturing of a great part of this energy, using it for alternative purposes.
In little more than three years since its creation, Crystal Lagoons has experienced exponential growth, and now has a portfolio of more than 180 projects in 45 countries on five continents.
Crystal Lagoons Corp. is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, that has developed and patented technology that allows for the low-cost construction and maintenance of unlimited size bodies of water in crystal-clear condition.
