PeroPure


PeroPure is a project aimed to bring in a portable, affordable and reusable hydrogen peroxide-based water disinfection device for people in disaster impacted area and developing regions that lack an access to the pipe system. Annually, between 300-350 natural disasters occurred worldwide, a large amount of the spending has been on importing clean drinking water. 3.4 million people die every year due to water-related disease, from drinking water without any disinfection. PeroPure is aiming to bring in a portable low-cost device, that will be able to perform the disinfection task by utilizing hydrogen peroxide, which is a green process with no harmful byproduct compared to chlorine-based method. This will greatly ease the burden on government and disaster relief team both financially and timewise, while benefiting the population in need.

This will greatly ease the burden on government and disaster relief team both financially and timewise, while benefiting the population in need. The core technology that we plan to employ in the device is covered under the following Patent Application: Lumen Ref. No.: S16-303/PCT, Application No.: PCT/US2017/056924 Filing Date: 10/17/2017 We already have a lab scale working prototype, by further optimizing the design and larger scale production, we are foreseeing a larger scale production and distribution. According to our current road map, our company will segament the market into three major sectors. The first section will be for disaster relief and in five year, we are hoping to make PeroPure device the default equipment for all the major organization for local water disinfection and field medical operation. The second section will be in the aids for developing area with no pipe system, as a stational clean water station that can be installed upon the existing infrastructures. The third section will be for individual consumer need, for backpack trip or household swimming pool sanitation. In general, we are hoping to provide a green option for people who demand the water disinfection. For longer terms, our vision on PeroPure will be to forge the company into a hub for small scale electrochemical devices operating upon solar/battery power. Given the decentralized nature of the solar energy, the current market still lacks a group of devices that is able to fully utilize the benefits of that in the production of chemical/agriculture. Our long term goal is to build the company with all different type of small scale E-chem device that, as we mentioned in our three market sections, will be beneficial for area that is off the grid and individuals who would like to take an extra step into the green future.
