Aquatas addresses the need for accessible water purification technologies with regionally appropriate, easy-to-use system designs featuring our affordable water purifier. Our device is a mechanically powered reverse osmosis system that can purify water containing salts, biological pathogens, and heavy metal contaminants. Aquatas has developed a functional prototype that has been used to validate and test our design concept. Within the last six months, we have formed valuable partnerships for international pilot studies, verified our device performance with thorough lab testing, and have begun preparing for market entry.

Technological innovation should improve the status quo and deliver a positive social impact at the same time. At Aquatas, we aim to bring innovative products to those who truly need them with a goal to foster their long term growth.

On the Horizon

Aquatas requires funding for further technical development to ensure that our device can optimize its water purification capability with a design conducive to affordable mass production. We will also be conducting longitudinal pilot studies to determine the device’s benefits over time across our key indicators.
