Dais Achieves Major Milestone for NanoClear Water Treatment and Desalination Technology in China
Product News Feb 02, 2011
The NanoClear module being assembled in Beijing, China, has produced 'first water'. This module is an initial component of the multi-million dollar purchase order signed between Dais, Genertec America, Inc., and CAST/OSC Beijing in April of 2010.
The pilot module enables the Chinese customer to potentially offer 'zero discharge waste water treatment' using Dais' Aqualyte™ membrane, and is successfully processing approximately 1,250 gallons of wastewater per day producing drinkable water about 1,000 times cleaner than that produced by other forms of standard water cleaning technologies. After an extended test period, more modules will be added to complete the program in mid-2012.
Tim Tangredi, CEO of Dais Analytic, said, "Achieving 'first water' is an important performance milestone for Dais on two levels - first it underscores the scalability of the NanoClear process and materials used and tested by a third party (China's Academy of Environmental Sciences) and, second, this achievement further validates the contribution the disruptive Dais nanotechnology brings to an industry seeking better answers."
Tangredi added, "It is important to note the Chinese have published papers stating it will have exploited all of its available water supplies by 2030. We see a tremendous opportunity in China working together to address its growing need for clean water which should continue to find Dais increasing exports while creating new, clean-technology jobs."
Scott Ehrenberg, Chief Technology Officer of Dais Analytic, said, "In addition to this initial deployment of NanoClear technology in China, Dais is anticipating to build a 'very visual' NanoClear pilot in Pasco County, Florida, which we would like to have open for the world water community to see in person and with internet access by the end of 2011."
