Global Water and AquiSense sign MOU for UV LED water disinfection

Global Water Technologies has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with UV-C LED system designer and manufacturer AquiSense Technologies, which is unveiling what is claimed to be the world's first UV-C LED production product for water disinfection at the Aquatech Amsterdam trade show at RAI Amsterdam, The Netherlands (3-6 November).

Both Global Water Technologies (based in Indianapolis, IN) and AquiSense Technologies (based in Florence, KY) are part of a regional water cluster formed by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and US Small Business Administration to drive innovation and entrepreneurship in the water sector.

"We are honored to be one of just eight companies to exhibit in the Amsterdam Innovation Pavilion," says 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."

Global Water Technologies is an initial customer of the PearlAqua system, which began shipping this week and uses LED technology to provide water disinfection without the use of chemicals or mercury-based UV lamps. "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," says Global Water's CEO Erik Hromadka.
