INDUSTRY: Technology FINANCING: Seed Fund

Acuva is developing a low power, zero maintenance drinking water purification unit for “at the sink” installation. By leveraging the unique characteristics of UV LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) that are just becoming commercially available, the Acuva team has developed a highly effective, easy to use and low footprint water disinfection solution. The use of Ultra Violet light to destroy bacteria and viruses is a widely used technique for making water safe for drinking.

Acuva graduated from the e@UBC Accelerator in March 2015 and has received funding from the e@UBC Seed Fund.
