Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) April 29, 2013
Arsenic found naturally in high concentrations in many regions of the world including the US, Bangladesh, and India, causes numerous illnesses and deaths. Over 80 million people in Bangladesh alone are consuming Arsenic contaminated water at levels 50 times higher than the 10 parts per billion (ppb) threshold the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates as safe for human consumption. In its Arsenic Cancer Risk Factor published by the National Academy of Sciences it is estimated that as high as 1 in 50 individuals that consume 2 liters a day of Arsenic contaminated water at 100ppb concentrations will die of a fatal cancer (1). The World Health Organization (WHO) calls the tragedy in Bangladesh “The largest mass poisoning of a population in history.”(2)
The ADS Arsenic Absorbent Filter Technology removes Arsenic without sludge or backwash reducing the cost of Arsenic water treatment by 50% or more. The ADS Arsenic Absorbent Filter Technology is the first of its kind patent pending water treatment technology that can remove Arsenic selectively from potable water and embed it in a solid matrix without producing sludge or needing backwashes. The ADS technology is therefore the most environmentally friendly, effective, and affordable technology marketed for removing Arsenic from potable water sources. With the certification announced today, ADS will implement a solution that is sufficiently safe, effective, and inexpensive, capable of removing Arsenic from water. The NSF/ANSI Standard 61 Certification gives ADS further support to market this life-saving technology in the US and worldwide.
