Drinking Water Solutions
A new economic reality for clean and safe drinking water.
Groundwater Nitrate Removal
The Microvi MNE™ plant at Sunny Slope Water Company in Pasadena, California, offers affordable nitrate removal — without producing a concentrated waste stream.
Our world today faces an unprecedented challenge in water treatment and purification. Issues like water scarcity are magnified by the widespread pollution of our groundwater and surface water resources.
Contaminants such as nitrate, perchlorate, chlorinated solvents, 1,4-dioxane, and many others threaten public health and environmental sustainability. Many of these contaminants are harmful at very low levels, thereby requiring expensive and complicated treatment processes to safely remove.
Using our MicroNiche Engineering™ (MNE) platform, Microvi has developed a suite of breakthrough technologies to provide clean drinking water reliably, cost-effectively, and simply — all without producing secondary waste.
