Beaverton, ORE (PRWEB) December 03, 2015
Puralytics today announced a charitable campaign to match SolarBag purchases with the donation of a SolarBag to a select group of non-profit organizations focused on providing clean safe drinking water to those in need around the world. In the month of December 2015, participants can go to http://www.solarbagwaterpurifier.com to purchase and choose from one of three aid organization to which a SolarBag will be donated: GS Malawi, NR2 Nicaragua and World Thirst.
“According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, 1.6 billion people face economic water shortage, lacking the necessary infrastructure to take water from rivers and aquifers,” said Mark Owen, Puralytics CEO, “Using the power of sunlight, the SolarBag eliminates the need for battery power, chemicals, pumping, cleaning filters or membranes, making natural water sources viable drinking water for many populations.”
“World Thirst is extremely grateful for this generous offer of SolarBag donations. To both Puralytics and those purchasing SolarBags, our sincerest “thanks” to you for your support, and for sharing the belief that together we can bring access to safe water for all,” said Luke Pinneo Founder, World Thirst.
The SolarBag, a water purification system that uses sunlight-activated nanotechnology to produce safe and sustainable fresh water, is the first non-powered, non-chemical system to exceed the requirements by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Standard and Protocol of Water Purifiers. The EPA standards requires that water purification methods destroy 99.9999% of bacteria, 99.99% of viruses and 99.9% of protozoa. The SolarBag also treats other contaminants not addressed by existing technologies on the market, such as pesticides, petrochemicals, heavy metals and pharmaceuticals.
Puralytics, a water purification equipment company headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon, has developed a patent pending photochemical water purification process using only light energy to activate an advanced nanotechnology photocatalyst. Water is purified through five simultaneous photochemical reactions, breaking down organic compounds (such as petrochemicals and pharmaceuticals), reducing and removing heavy metals (like arsenic, lead, and mercury), and sterilizing bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. There are no chemical additives and 100% of the water is purified. Puralytics Shield and SolarBag products set new standards for sustainability, ease of use and cost effectiveness.
