A new product from Puralytics is making waves in the clean water industry: SolarBag, a water purification system that uses sunlight-activated nanotechnology to produce three liters of pure drinking water in three to six hours of exposure.
Puralytics is a developer of photochemical water purification products based in Beaverton. Its SolarBag is the first non-powered, non-chemical system ever to exceed the requirements by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Standard and Protocol for Water Purifiers.
