Identification

Around 1.000.000 plastic bottles are bought worldwide per second, and less than 50% is recycled, which generates a big pollution in ecosystems, mainly maritime, and ends up affecting humans, for example by the intake of microplastic particles found in tap water. Argentina, where there was not another option as bottled water to obtain mineral water, is also the country with the biggest proportion of natural water affected by Arsenic. PURA Inverse Osmosis, a non-bottled mineral water plant tech, removes 99.9% of contaminants such as Arsenic, Fluorine, Heavy Metals, Chlorine and its derivatives, remains of agrochemicals, glyphosate, among other impurities. PURA Inverse Osmosis provides access to quality water to its users, being a great solution also for vulnerable populations.

  • A compact cylinder composed of 3 layers of 100% recyclable polypropylene fibers that retain particles of 10, 5 and 1 micron respectively
  • It is recommended to drink 2 Liters of water per day. In a typical family (4 persons), 8 Liters of potable water are consumed, which translates into four 2 Liters plastic bottles per day. So using our product, 1460 plastic bottles are not used
  • 99.99% of CO2 emitted in the atmosphere is reduced
  • 99.99% of energy used is reduced
  • 99.96% of non-renewable resources are reduced
03.

The Financial benefits

  • Less than 1 year payback time
  • % Cost of water with solution respect from the mainstream alternative= 14.33%. For example: If 2 Liters of bottled water cost EUR 2, so 2 Liters of mineral water treated by our product cost EUR 0.2866
