AquiSense Technologies is proud to announce a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) between the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), Washington University, and AquiSense Technologies. Through the CRADA partnership, AquiSense is working with US EPA researchers at the National Homeland Security Research Center (NHSRC) and the Department of Energy, Environmental and Chemical Engineering in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Washington University in St. Louis, to design, fabricate, and test an integrated water treatment system incorporating advanced ultraviolet light emitting diode (UV LED) disinfection and filtration technologies. The integrated device will target higher flow rates and more challenging water qualities than currently available commercial systems. The NHSRC is particularly interested in rugged and quickly deployable emergency water treatment systems capable of providing safe water following natural and man-made incidents.

“We are excited to participate in this development agreement as it showcases patented AquiSense technology and allows the expansion of UV LED disinfection technology to new application areas including; small community water and wastewater systems and a variety of industrial solutions,” said AquiSense CEO, Oliver Lawal. “Since the formation of AquiSense, we have focused on establishing ourselves as a market leader by engineering innovative UV-C LED based systems. The agreement we have announced today further reinforces our ability to maintain this leadership position as our UV-C LED technologies will be optimized for more challenging water treatment scenarios”.

In addition to today’s announcement, AquiSense is currently participating in many other innovative research collaborations. The supply of cutting-edge UV-C LED research equipment like the PearlBeam collimated beam device, is enabling over 40 laboratories globally to advance the application science of many critical human and environmental projects. Notable close co-operation of field studies with separate groups at University of Colorado at Boulder and Dalhousie University, add to the Biocontamination Integrated Control for Wet Systems for Space Exploration (BIOWYSE) project, that aims to address biocontamination issues on the International Space Station (ISS).
