Soon, explorers on land and sea can set off with the confidence that they can safely consume water wherever they may be, no matter the source.
Vancouver’s Acuva Technologies and Lippert Components are creating a co-branded range of water purification products designed specifically for the RV and marine markets that will be sold exclusively across channels by Lippert in North America.
A finalist for the Company of the Year – Growth Award at the 2021 BC Tech Awards and singled out by Techcouver as a homegrown B.C. startups to watch in 2022, Acuva is focused on providing access to affordable clean drinking water in as many countries as possible.
Acuva is a global leader in UV-LED disinfection system design for water, air, and surface disinfection. Alumni of the entrepreneurship@UBC program, the startup released its first consumer UV-LED water purification system in 2016.
“At Acuva, we believe everyone should have access to safe drinking water, which is why we are excited to partner with Lippert to bring our range of water purification products to the fast-growing RV and marine markets in North America,” said Manoj Singh, President and CEO of Acuva Technologies.
“While having access to clean drinking water is a priority for our customers, we know concerns around protecting our environment have never been more top-of-mind. Our products offer a safe and sustainable drinking water solution, removing the need to carry single use plastic water bottles. Every Acuva-Lippert product has the potential to remove hundreds of thousands of plastic water bottles from our landfills over its lifetime.”
UV-LED disinfection systems have been addressing the barriers to safe drinking water for more than seven years. Beyond providing compact, low-power and high effective applications for individual and commercial customers, Acuva’s technology can be integrated into appliances for the home or office.
The Acuva-Lippert products for the RV and marine markets will be available for purchase in Q3 2022.
