Cost effective and sustainable hydrogel made from shrimp shells that efficiently removes heavy metals (chromium 6 and selenium) and harmful chemicals (nitrates and phosphates) from water). Should be used in freshwater as an exhaust and replace media, and can be easily mixed with granular media. Nutrient recovery is possible as it is biodegradable.
For smaller scale that can be applied to different types of filter membranes, including ceramic, nylon, cellulose nitrate, glass fiber, among other membranes. Efficient at removing heavy metals (lead) and inactivating micro-organisms.
WAVVE Stream Inc. offers filtration media technologies stemming from two patents that significantly enhance contaminant removal capabilities for existing water filtration systems and membranes.
WAVVE’s initial go-to-market strategy is to produce residential filters focused on using sustainable materials for health impact filtration
Regeneration Capabilities: The Bio-Beads can regenerate at least three times without losing any capacity. The Bio-Beads have shown that regeneration through 0.1 M of HCl, 0.1 M NaHCO3, or even 0.1 M of NaCl is possible and effective.
Scalable Process: The capacity of the beads has not changed while scaling up the production process.
Faster Kinetics: Within 5 minutes, the Bio-Beads have captured at least two times more contaminants than current Ion exchange resins. (30ppm of Nitrates, 20mL)
WAVVE’s solution is the cost effective and sustainable solution
