Fernando is an influential scientist, innovator and businessman. At Crystal Lagoons® – a U.S. multinational water innovation company that in less than ten years since its foundation has accumulated over 1,000 projects in different stages of operation, planning, design and construction in 60 countries worldwide. 800 of these are Public Access Lagoons™, also known as PAL™. As such, Fernando has developed proprietary technologies that are positively impacting the world.
Fernando has been honored many times by prestigious international awards, such as “Entrepreneur of the year”, “Innovator of the year”, and “Businessman of the year”. In 2016, he received in Rome The Stevie® Award, popularly known as The Oscars of the world of business, and previously awarded to Steve Jobs and Jeff Bezos. He has also been honored with the Green Apple Award at Britain’s House of Commons two years in a row (2016 and 2017) for his industrial cooling technologies, and with the Real Innovator Award, by the London Business School, to mention a few.
Fernando’s crystalline lagoons are limitless in size and they are taking the beach life to some of the most diverse regions of the world thanks to the development of proprietary water-treatment technologies that represent very low water, chemical and energy consumption, adding up to a sum total of 2,000 patents in 190 countries. As a consequence, Crystal Lagoons intellectual property has been valued by Economics Partners LLC at US$ 4.1 billion.
After 10 years of revolutionizing the real estate world, Crystal Lagoons is now transforming city life with its PAL. These monumental crystalline lagoons surrounded by white sands, which are accessed through a ticket. Crystal Lagoons bringsa piece of the ocean to the city, creating beach life in urban surroundings, much like an English architect did 200 years ago, when he introduced small forests into the city of London, which we know as city parks.
PAL are an ideal location for hosting events such as launches, fairs, weddings, concerts, etc. in a paradisiacal environment and multiple set-ups. They also have vast gastronomy, retail stores, beach clubs, amphitheaters, and recreational and cultural activities. They are a totally new generation of urban recreational hubs, which sets a new standard for any public place of entertainment, becoming the meeting point of the 21st century.
PAL are an innovative concept and business method patented by Crystal Lagoons, which is taking the multinational to the next level, generating an exponential increase in sales and structural change for the company. In fact, the company’s projection for the next 30 years is to license 4,610 PAL projects worldwide.
Fernando currently resides in the United States and is dedicated full time to developing new innovations, including a set of applications of high environmental relevance that could potentially help solve global issues, such as water and energy scarcity. Some of these technologies are sustainable industrial cooling systems and energy-less desalination methods, to mention a few.
Fernando’s innovations have positively disrupted water-treatment and purification technologies, in areas such as industrial processes, public spaces, recreational facilities and ornamental settings, in both private or public projects.
Up until now, over 10,000 media outlets have already reported on Fernando’s innovations, and Crystal Lagoons has 6 branch offices around the world.
