AquiSense Technologies announced a unique product for SUEZ. The partnership provides SUEZ with AquiSense’s patented UV light emitting diode (UV-C LED) Water Treatment Technology for water disinfection directly at the point of use in critical laboratory applications.
AquiSense and SUEZ have been engaged in close co-operation for over a year in a detailed joint development effort to deliver an advanced laboratory water purification unit equipped with advanced UV-C LED technology. The new laboratory product offers a high-level microbial disinfection barrier directly at the point of use. Unlike competing units, where pathogens can enter the upstream pipeline, contaminating the system and future samples, the new UV LED disinfection acts as a barrier preventing contamination from entering the water purification system as a whole.
Xylem/Chris Long Foundation
Xylem announced it is partnering with The Chris Long Foundation’s Waterboys initiative to bring clean and sustainable water to communities in need across the United States. The partnership was announced today during the National Ground Water Association’s (NGWA) 2019 Groundwater Week.
Xylem and Waterboys seek to raise awareness about domestic water issues, including that 1.5 million people in the US lack access to clean, safe drinking water at home. It’s an issue that is particularly acute for lower-income communities in rural areas. Working with Xylem’s corporate social responsibility program (Watermark) and activated by the company’s Goulds Water Technology brand, this partnership will deliver a series of water well projects to provide rural communities with reliable, safe water access, which can lead to better overall health and improved quality of life. The partnership with Waterboys directs Xylem Watermark’s community of stakeholders, employee volunteers and product donations toward an important cause and sets Goulds Water Technology to work for communities in need.
Established in 2015, Waterboys is the signature initiative of The Chris Long Foundation, dedicated to raising funds and awareness to provide clean water to one million people. With an initial focus in East Africa, the US program will expand Waterboys’ existing efforts under a program called Hometown H2o.
The program will work with the Water System Council’s Water Well Trust to fund and drill water wells for low-income households that do not have access to water at home or within a reasonable distance. By raising funds to build individual wells and small, shared wells, Hometown H2o will be able to provide safe drinking water to American homes in need in one of the most cost-effective ways.
