    About This Project

    40 US states are presently experiencing or soon expecting water shortages. The US Oil & Gas industry dumps 350 billion gallons of wastewater onto our planet every year due to high water treatment costs. That is equivalent to 530,000 Olympic-sized swimming pools.

    In response, we are developing a low-cost, efficient, and environmentally friendly water treatment solution. If successful, this technology, "PhotoCide," could reduce industrial environmental impact, while saving water, energy, and money.
