Water purification by filtration is a 1000-year-old technology and perhaps the most sophisticated solution in the world. At Josab, we purify water that is contaminated with natural pollutants or otherwise contaminated to provide drinking water for more people. Today, air, soil and water pollution is affecting more and more people around the world. Clean water is in many cases a direct determinant of a decent life.
The method is simple. Water is purified through a filter, the natural mineral-based Aqualite™ filter, using our patented technology. This is completely organic and purifies the water without additives or chemicals. Our way of purifying contaminated water meets both the needs of our customers and the GLOBAL WHO standard.
Aqualite™ mineral is mined in the Hungarian village of Rátka. Aqualite™ has outstanding properties. It belongs to a group of minerals called zeolites, which have a rare ability to exchange and adsorb ions in water. This means that bacteria can be removed without chlorine or other chemicals. Aqualite™ is currently the only zeolite in the world that has the water purification capabilities that we at Josab are working with.
Aqualite™ provides effective cleaning without the use of chemicals. The minerals found in the mine are more porous than similar minerals and have a specific surface area in the range of 200-500 m3/g. This allows Aqualite™ to filter particles as small as 1 micron. Parasites and bacteria are reduced by 90-98 percent. In addition to UV filtration, the treated water is almost completely cleansed of bacteria, viruses and parasites, including pathogens such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium, which are resistant to many forms of chlorine and UV radiation. The result is perfectly healthy drinking water.
In all segments of the supply chain, we strive to create sustainable and environmentally friendly products, technology and know-how. Global water consumption is expected to grow by 3 percent per year. While 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered by water, global freshwater supplies are decreasing every year. Developing countries are expected to continue a long-standing trend of significantly increased water consumption. As the world’s population grows, especially in water-scarce regions, the industrialisation of developing countries means increasing economic growth, with water supply from the industrial sector projected to increase by 400% by 2050.
