Han Santos Client PureBlueTech wins EPA Award, Funding for their Clean & Safe Water Technology
On March 1st (and announced April 6th), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded long time Han Santos client, Pure Blue Tech, a $100,000 Small Business Innovation Research grant. This grant specifically draws attention to Pure Blue Tech’s PureMembraneTM technology to treat and reuse water from various sources.
Using membrane filtration for water and wastewater treatment, reuse, and desalination is not a new practice however typical membranes clog and foul from the removed pollutants. Fouling causes pure water flow to slow down, wastes energy, and requires chemical cleanings. Pure Blue Tech addresses the issue by introducing thin, flexible material that directs ultrasound to the membranes, keeping them clean without interruption (PureSoundTM).
With increasing water insecurity around the world, improving water reuse technology is both a hot topic and deeply imperative for many countries, not just the US. This EPA grant is yet another validation of Pure Blue Tech’s approach.
Pure Blue Tech has tapped Han Santos for their ongoing IP support, which includes patenting this technology (U.S. Patent No. 10,799,835). The firm is a strong advocate of filing patent protection early. Thro The technology IP portfolio also includes a low-cost manufacturing method for nanoimprinted low-fouling membranes (PureMembraneTM), which has been funded by the U.S. Army.
Pure Blue Tech Inc. is a water treatment technology company. They specialize in improving water filtration and purification using high-tech membranes and related techniques. They aim to enable access to secure clean water supplies by innovating resource-saving water quality solutions through their patented PureSoundTM and PureMembraneTM technologies.
