One of the world’s biggest problems is “Safe water” and many top consumer companies, including BRITA and 3M, have all kind of draw-backs – including use of chemical, chemical and pumping. But more importantly, none of them are able to kill 99.9999% germs or block all of them. Nothing is ever 100% silver-bullet proof or perfect. The problem of safe drinking is essential in many developing countries and to most people, not many know that chlorine tastes bad and it takes time to filter or kill the germ.
At Liquidity Nanotechnology Corporation, they’ve spent over 15 years developing the idea of coming up with filtration membrane system using nanotech 3D technology that blocks the entry of harmful germs, including E-coli and other protozoa. (If you don’t know what protozoan parasites are, you can google or check this link here – these stuffs are micro-germs that make you sick from your stomach and can even make you bleed to death.) Liquidity company worked with medical and technological researchers who spent 15 years in developing the filtration process.
In the simple eyes, the filtration system looks extremely simple, but it is often the hardest to achieve. The molecular level of filtration of this system is looking at 0.2μ or 0.000001 or 10^-6. You can see the filtration the microscopic level and developing this level of filtration meant you have to put in several km of microfibers into a 10cm small filtration.
The most amazing thing about this product is its enormous social value in attaining the most convenient and safe-to-drink water, supported by medical university and researchers. You might think that developing this product will cost about several millions. But you are wrong. Liquidity received little less than $1M in developing this product, and as of today, they’ve received over $9.3M funding promise from TechCrunch and won the $50,000 NY Startup contest.
This will be the next big thing that help our society and developing nations in real impacting way.
