Global Water Technologies based in Indianapolis, Indiana USA, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with AquiSense Technologies. AquiSense Technologies is a Kentucky company that is launching a UV-C LED production product for water disinfection at Aquatech Amsterdam at RAI Amsterdam, The Netherlands (3-6 November).
Global Water Technologies is an initial customer of the PearlAqua system, which AquiSense began shipping this week. The PearlAqua system uses LED technology to disinfect water without using mercury-based UV lamps or chemicals.
Both Global Water Technologies and AquiSense Technologies are part of a regional water cluster of companies that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Small Business Administration formed to promote entrepreneurship and innovation in businesses related to water.
“We are honored to be one of just eight companies to exhibit in the Amsterdam Innovation Pavilion,” said AquiSense’s founder & CEO Oliver Lawal. “Our compact PearlAqua product marks a key milestone as the first production-volume UV-C LED water disinfection system. It is the result of eight years of development work, over $5m of investment and hundreds of hours of user interactions.”
“We look forward to working with AquiSense to identify new opportunities to commercialize this innovative technology where traditional UV applications may not have been feasible,” Erik Hromadka, CEO of Global Water Technologies commented.
