KEASBEY, N.J. — Global Ecology Corporation has filed an application to patent its Mobile PureWater System. This transportable system filters and purifies up to 90,000 liters of water per day by pumping it from a contaminated water source and treating it within the system itself.
The unit is powered by solar, wind, diesel generator or vehicle alternator dispatch and requires no external power source.
The patent is now officially pending, which means that Global Energy is able to market the system under a “patent pending” designation.
According to Global Ecology CEO Peter Ubaldi, the Mobile PureWater System will revolutionize the way purified water is delivered to hard-to-reach areas.
Since units can be transported overland and process enough water to meet the daily consumption needs of roughly 4,500 people, the company anticipates a high demand for the system. It has already received requests to begin unit production for deployment in Afghanistan, Nigeria and regions in the U.S.
Aqua Environmental Laboratories of Newtown, Conn., performed tests on the system. The contaminated, pre-treatment water was found to have an E-Coli level of 135 parts per million and a Coliform level greater than 20,000 parts per million.
After being run through the system, the water was re-tested and both of these levels were at zero. Tests for other contaminates showed similar results.
