Technologies

  • http://www.CulliganWater.com - Culligan Water is a leading supplier of money-saving total home water filtration systems. Microprocessors and Culligan’s patented Quadra Hull® technology reduce salt and water usage, saving the consumer money over time. Culligan systems are also certified by the Water Quality Association and have been featured as a Consumers Digest Best Buy.
  • http://www.AquaSana.com - Healthy water products, including drinking, shower, bottles, and whole house water filters; as well as replacement cartridges and other accessories. They've got an awesome customer service phone number: 1-888-No-bottle.
  • Ceramic Water Filters Win IWA Award for Cambodia - The International Water Association (IWA) awarded UNICEF and the Water and Sanitation Program with the 2008 Project Innovation Award Grand Prize for providing Cambodia with ceramic water filters. These water purification devices are made and distributed by Cambodian nationals, and have resulted in a 50 percent drop in diarrheal illnesses in the region since their implementation in 2002. (Inhabitat; March 9, 2009)
  • New technology for portable wastewater treatment unveiled - Nicknamed “DAAB” (Deployable Aqueous Aerobic Bioreactor), this new self-sustaining, portable, and “smart” wastewater treatment system offers a solution to wastewater treatment. The system is able to convert wastewater to EPA acceptable standards within 24-48 hours and being housed in a 40-foot-long shipping container makes it completely portable. (Gizmag; Nov. 16, 2008)
  • LIFESAVER: World’s First Ultra Filtration Water Bottle - Lifesaver can filter out bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi and all other microbiological waterborne pathogens. Fill it with water by unscrewing the base and dipping it in the nearest puddle or stream, screw the base back and use the pump to force the water through to a teat at the other end. (Inhabitant; May 29, 2008)
  • LifeStraw - Portable water purification tool cleanses surface water and makes it safe for human consumption using a halogen-based resin to kill bacteria, textile pre-filters to remove particles and active carbon to withhold parasites.
  • Converting Tailpipes into Water Fountains - Modified military Humvees, now in testing, turn diesel exhaust into fresh drinking water for soldiers. At the core is a heavy-duty carbon filter bed, engineered by LexCarb, that filters toxins from the exhaust stream. (Popular Science: Jan. 2006)
  • 'ESP Water Filter Products - There are multiple technologies currently used in stationary and portable water treatment, whether for home/office use or for camping. Some are common and some are new. Each is used to address a specific contaminant or water problem.
  • Make A Water Filter From Old Tires - Crumb rubber, chewed up old tires, is used on athletic tracks, playgrounds, and increasingly as an alternative to mulch. Now, Dr. Yuefeng Xie, associate professor of environmental engineering at Penn State Harrisburg, has found crumb rubber makes an excellent water filter. The rubber keeps the large particles out on top, and thus creates a much higher throughput. (TreeHugger; Nov. 21, 2006)
  • Clean Water with Nanofilters - Water can pass, while bacteria and viruses are blocked. Filters sturdy enough to be cleaned repeatedly, sterilized, autoclaved. (MIT Technology Review; Nov. 2004)
  • 'Spin Clean Filtration - SpinClean is an extremely flexible depth filter technology which is versatile in its application. The filter technology is modular and comes in 4 basic sizes to cater with flows from 2m3/hr upwards with filtration from 10 -100 micron.

Suppliers / Retailers

  • 'Commercial Water Filters - Billi's latest water systems feature advanced eco-technology and more safety, convenience and elegance than ever before.

    The Cycle of Insanity: The Real Story of Water - The Surfrider Foundation has produced an excellent 20-minute video (2-min. trailer) explaining the insanity behind how we've come to handle water in modern society. It addresses such things as our concrete and pavement preventing aquifers from being replenished; and how we spend so much money transporting water great distances when we could do more to conserve and recycle it close to the point of use.
