The Company's QuantumFlux™ membrane modules pass strict NSF Standard 61 requirements
Los Angeles, Calif. - June 7, 2011 - NanoH2O, Inc. manufacturer of the next generation of reverse osmosis (RO) membrane technology, is proud to announce that its flagship product has received NSF Standard 61 Certification. This certification attests to the safety and viability of QuantumFlux membrane modules when used in the production of drinking water.
NanoH2O utilizes advanced nanotechnology to increase membrane permeability by 50-100% over conventional membranes, while matching best-in-class salt rejection. Greater permeability translates to increased membrane productivity, decreasing energy consumption which is the major cost of desalination. QuantumFlux membrane modules are produced at NanoH2O's Los Angeles-based manufacturing facility and are available in an 8-inch diameter spiral-wound configuration that fits into industry-standard pressure vessels.
NSF International is a leading global organization that provides standards development, product certification, auditing, education and risk management for public health and safety. NSF Standard 61 sets criteria for the testing and evaluation of products that come into contact with drinking water to ensure they do not leach contaminants into the water. These contaminants include those regulated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and
Health Canada, as well as any other non-regulated compounds that may be of concern.
"This is a mark of distinction within our industry that validates the safety and viability of our nanocomposite membrane technology in the production of drinking water," said Jeff Green, CEO of NanoH2O. "I am very proud of our world-class product development and manufacturing operations team who worked diligently to ensure our product's compliance to NSF 61 Standards. With our recently announced commercial launch, this achievement is another testament to the global commercial applicability of our technology."
