“We are committed to ensuring that clean water is a right, not a privilege.”
FLINT, Mich. (PRWEB) August 06, 2020
Quartz Water Source, a company committed to expanding global access to clean water, is launching today. Founded by natives of Flint, Michigan and inspired by the ongoing water crisis, Quartz brings clean water to those who need it most by offering cutting-edge Atmospheric Water Generation (AWG) technology solutions.
Quartz has partnered with Watergen, a global leader in Atmospheric Water Generator technology, to provide plug-and-drink clean water technology, requiring no infrastructure other than electricity, This technology is designed to meet the needs of cities, villages, factories, hospitals, and other areas where water is difficult to access, or current water sources are contaminated, as it generates water at near-industrial scale. As a ‘second line’ clean water solution, supplementing, not replacing, municipal water supply, AWG technology uses the planet’s biggest source of water, the air. The technology also allows for fast and easy deployment in most weather conditions, remote areas and difficult to access locations.
“We are committed to ensuring that clean water is a right, not a privilege,” says Jonathan Quarles, Founder and CEO. “As a Flint-native, I’ve seen, first-hand, what life without access to clean water looks like. Knowing that one in every three people around the world doesn’t have access to clean drinking water inspired me to roll up my sleeves and launch Quartz Water Source.”
Quartz will be focusing on municipalities, hospitals, and prisons in the near-term, with potential expansion into other verticals in the future. The technology behind Quartz can also act as a national disaster solution for government entities, agencies and disaster response organizations with an efficient, mobile, and reliable clean water source for the moment disaster strikes.
To further help those without access to clean water, Quartz is committed to donating a portion of proceeds to water-related causes in marginalized communities throughout the U.S.
