AquiSense Technologies announced that it has signed a cooperative research and development agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Washington University.
Through the partnership, AquiSense will work with EPA researchers at the National Homeland Security Research Center and the Department of Energy, as well as chemical engineering researchers from Washington university, to design, develop and test an integrated water treatment system that uses advanced UV light emitting diode disinfection and filtration technologies. The device will be designed to target higher flow rates and more challenging water qualities than what is currently available in commercial systems.
“We are excited to participate in this development agreement as it 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,” AquiSense CEO Oliver Lawal said in a press release. “Since the formation of AquiSense, we have focused on establishing ourselves as a market leader by engineering innovative UV-C LED based systems. The agreement we have announced today further reinforces our ability to maintain this leadership position as our UV-C LED technologies will be optimized for more challenging water treatment scenarios.”
AquiSense is also working on other research projects like supplying UV-C LED research equipment to over 40 laboratories around the world.
