SeaStar Ocean

SeaStar Ocean (“SeaStar”) is a technology development and commercialization company founded in 2014 by William J Kommers to pursue the development of ocean and water-related technologies. We are committed to creating social value. Our corporate strategy and our business model have been designed to deliver on this commitment.

The first such technology development to come out of SeaStar is the RainWater Maker, a new, water treatment system that leverages Nature’s Water Cycle to convert unsafe, undrinkable water as found in estuaries, swamps, stagnant pools, polluted rivers and oceans into clean, safe drinking water for people.

SeaStar’s primary purpose is to bring about a positive change to the lives of people living in areas of severe water stress and who are forced by circumstance to drink unsafe water.

Too many people in the world today suffer from the consequences of drinking unsafe water. Here’s a snapshot view of the scale of the problem:

  • 1 in 10 people in the world lack access to safe drinking water.
  • Contaminated water transmits diseases including diarrhea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio.
  • Each year, water-related diseases affect more than 1.5 billion people and are responsible for over 500,000 deaths caused by diarrhea…most of them children.
  • At any one time, one-half of the world’s hospital beds are occupied with patients suffering from waterborne diseases.
  • In 2025 – less than 9 years from now – 5.5 billion people are expected to be living in water-stressed areas as a result of water use, pollution, population growth, and climate change.

We intend to fulfill our primary purpose by providing populations living in global areas of water scarcity with our RainWater Maker that can convert many kinds of unsafe, polluted sources of water into clean, safe drinking water for people.
