Energy efficient water sterilization system


UV water sterilization systems are widespread and effective. They constitute a 1 billion $ market. The main disadvantage of these systems is their operation costs, represented by high energy consumption. This is the one of the reasons for which UV water sterilization systems are not universally implemented, and other methods, such as water chlorination, are still in use.

Technology Strengths

Using our proprietary UV water sterilization technology, could lead to significant electric energy savings compared to traditional UV water sterilization systems per volume unit of water. This energy efficiency is translated in economic efficiency therefore justifying a higher commercial price for our product.

The increased energy efficiency  leads to judicious usage of planetary resources, with a decrease in carbon footprint of water processing stations.

Technology Weaknesses

The proposed technology is untested, yet.

The end product may be susceptible to mechanical vibrations.

The end product may be susceptible to silting and may require consumables.

The technology addresses only pathogenic agents and not toxic substances. This means complementary usage of non proprietary technologies for the removal and, or inactivation of toxic substances.


The reduction of electricity expenses for the sterilization of  drinking water and wastewater , can lead to gaining access to a large market share of the 1 billion $ UV sterilization systems market.

This new energy efficient technology may increase the UV sterilization market size.

Reducing energy consumption is environmental friendly, and this can lead to an increase in visibility and status for the brand employing it.

Financial status

We are looking for financing for this project.
