Bird Foundation was created by the U.S. and Israel government in 1977 to build beneficial cooperation between U.S. and Israeli start-ups and established organizations in high-tech industries. Since then, more than 800 projects have been approved with leading companies like American Red Cross, Bayer Pharmaceutical or IBM. The Bird Foundation has recently announced a $400,000 co-development grant to Puralytics and EZPack.
Puralytics, a world leader in light-activated nanotechnology drinking water purifiers, is partnering with EZPack, a world leader in water bladders for emergency and military use, to develop a larger scale water purifying bladders. The product is based on two components: Puralytics light-activated purification element, and EZPack two layer bladders. Water bladders are used for temporary water storage in emergency and disaster relief, remote location, and military applications. In many such cases, the water is not drinkable, and water treatment equipment is not available. Using these new LED or sunlight activated nanotechnology inserts in the bladders provides means for purifying non-potable water. The purifying element is activated either by sunlight and/or internal LED light powered by an internal battery.
“We are thrilled about this alliance. Implementing Puralytics technology to purify the water in our bladders meets the needs of military and disaster response customers who need to treat and store water onsite,” said EZPack CEO Alex Harel.
Under this grant, Puralytics will develop a higher performance and more durable…
