NSF International Provides Certification for Paper Filter that Reduces Arsenic and Lead to Below EPA and WHO Standards

Achieves Superior Results at up to 80% Less Cost

Press Conference to be Held March 6 in Palo Alto, CA

SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

WHAT: What if a family cut off from clean water due to a disaster could quickly filter water from nearly any source to regain access to safe drinking water? What if industries that produce large amounts of wastewater, such as mining, could cost effectively filter it to a cleanliness level that it can be introduced to local waterways or the water table?
   
  No longer a “what if,” Mesofilter will unveil its latest breakthrough filtration medium; the first paper filter capable of immobilizing harmful pollutants such as arsenic, heavy metals, bacteria, viruses and radioactive elements without the use of pressure, chemicals, electrical potential, or plastic, and with no hazardous filtration byproducts.
   
  Mesofilter will hold a press conference to discuss one of the world’s biggest problems, the lack of access to clean water and air free of these hazardous contaminates, and what steps can be taken to improve human health. The session titled, “A New Material to Solve the Global Arsenic and Lead Problem,” will include:
   
  
  • A discussion on the effects of the global water quality crisis, causes, and potential solutions including:
    • “Arsenic, Lead and Uranium Pollution in Drinking Water, and Public Health” with Dr. Elizabeth Sun from the University of San Francisco
    • “Uranium in Drinking Water: Worldwide Health Problem, Sources in Contamination, and Removal Methods” with Dr. Boris Faybishenko from the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab
  • Live demonstrations of the easy filtration process and effectiveness
  • A deep dive into the technology development, which mimics the human nose
  • A presentation from NSF International of arsenic and lead removal certifications
WHY: Everyone deserves access to safe water, but by 2025, it is estimated that more than one-third of the world’s population will not have access to clean drinking water. Arsenic poisoning alone affects 200 million people worldwide and in the United States, 170 million people drink water containing cancer-causing, radioactive elements. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), arsenic, lead, and mercury are the three most hazardous threats to human heath, and the consumption of these hazardous materials often comes from contaminated water and air.
