Nikkiso Group company AquiSense Technologies LLC of Erlanger, KY, USA (which designs and manufactures water, air and surface disinfection systems based on UV-C LEDs) has announced a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) and Washington University.

Through the CRADA partnership, AquiSense is working with US EPA researchers at the National Homeland Security Research Center (NHSRC) and the Department of Energy, Environmental and Chemical Engineering in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Washington University in St. Louis in order to design, fabricate and test an integrated water treatment system incorporating ultraviolet light-emitting diode (UV LED) disinfection and filtration technologies. The integrated device will target higher flow rates and more challenging water qualities than currently available commercial systems. The NHSRC is particularly interested in rugged and quickly deployable emergency water treatment systems capable of providing safe water following natural and man-made incidents.

The development agreement “showcases patented AquiSense technology and allows the expansion of UV LED disinfection technology to new application areas including small community water and wastewater systems and a variety of industrial solutions,” says CEO Oliver Lawal. “Our UV-C LED technologies will be optimized for more challenging water treatment scenarios.”
